The end of the 9,000-year-old Clovis culture was not the result of a comet colliding with Earth, according to a newly published report.
Researchers say that they have gathered evidence that shows that a massive comet never impacted near the site of the Clovis society, located in what is now known as New Mexico. The Clovis culture is widely seen as one of the oldest cultures in North America. Soon after forming (less than 600 years), the society disappeared, leading to speculation that a significant event killed off large portions of the population.
