Watch The Video Of Ancient Village Discovered In Canada Older Than Pyramids At Giza

An amazing archaeological discovery has just been made where an ancient village discovered in Canada has been found to be approximately 14,000 years old. It was discovered on a rocky area of Triquet Island in Canada just 500km northwest of Victoria.

What’s remarkable about the find is the fact that it is even older than Rome and 10,000 years older than the pyramids of Egypt. The incredible discovery all set to redefine history was actually made by a school student. It also proves stories narrated of the ancestors by the indigenous Heiltsuk nation of the area.

1 Discovery gives scientists proof of the first human civilization in North America

The 14000-year-old village is helping scientists find out how human civilization first came to North America. In fact, this is the oldest proof of civilization in the North American continent. Artifacts like fish hooks, tools for lighting fires and spears dating back to the ice age were discovered on the site.

2 Even older than the pyramids at Giza

Anthropology student Alisha Gavreau and her team from the Hakai Institute were carrying out excavation work on an island in the area when they discovered the ancient village in Canada. The first proof of discovery was a hearth buried 8 feet underground which contained charcoal that dated back 14,000 years. Subsequent excavation on the site revealed more artifacts.

In an interview to a Canadian network Alisha said “I remember when we get the dates back and we just kind of sat there going, holy moly, this is old. What this is doing is just changing our idea of the way in which North America was first peopled”

3 North American Anthropological history redefined

Till now scientists have widely accepted the Smithsonian version that the first inhabitants of North America walked across a land bridge between Siberia and Alaska. But now the ancient village discovered in Canada supports local stories of village elders of the Heiltsuk nation who claimed that the tribes’ ancestors survived the ice age by living on a coastal strip that didn’t freeze.

“To think about how these stories survived all of that, only to be supported by this archaeological evidence is just amazing said William Housty of the Heiltsuk nation. It is amazing to note that the civilization is even older than Rome itself and 3 times older than the pyramids of Giza.
