← New evidence suggests Stone Age hunters from Europe discovered America

Can they be certain that the Flint was French? If so, surely this makes it a certainty, rather than a possibility, that Europeans arrived in America during the ice age.

That said, does the style of the tools really prove that they arrived 19 – 26,000 years ago? Would it not be possible that the tribe/band/clan who made the trek were a bit behind the times in stone technology, or that they took several thousand years to reach America?
