I have little information to be of any help re: your inquiry, but
fortunately found what appears to be a marvelous site which I believe
has much in the very specific areas you mention in your Post.

by a Mary Sutherland w/photo of her at Rock Lake, WI on the Rock
River (near the Aztalan Mounds where many of my research friends and
I spent a great deal of time). I see on the web site Mary is on-line.

multiplied for almost 1000 years before a major revolution took place.
The Canaanite-Berber cultures of Western Europe were savagely
disrupted by the invading Israelites . Refugees--first a trickle,
then a flood--began to flee from the ceaseless predations of this

sail for the New World; and a massive surge of Berber immigration to
North America from North Africa and the Iberian Peninsula was
underway -- as proven by a myriad of cultural innovations from the
Beaker Group culture which burst upon the North American scene.
Professor Barry Fell dates a MAJOR WAVE of "Iberian" (i.e. Canaanite-
Berber) colonists to the New World to this period (America B.C.,
Let me know if you cannot get into the site and/or would like M.
Sutherland's email address. Reading about her mound
preservationist efforts, Vince, she will undoubtedly appreciate your
efforts at Cahokia discussed in an earlier post to the Ancient
Waterways and PreColumbian Inscriptions web page.
Perhaps Ms. Sutherland is a member of the Ancient Earthworks Society
group in Madison; I shall forward her site to that group's president,
Tom Solberg, mentioned earlier in posts by MinnesotaStan and by

The links are valid as shown, and launch fine for me, though they are
slow to open. Probably a reflection of a slow (or busy) server at
Here's what impressed me -
"...Despite poor visibility, and the difficulty of maneuvering over
three foot high swaths, seven flakes, a small core fragment and a
small biface were observed. This debris was thinly spread over an area
of 450m x 120m..."
"Thinly" doesn't begin to describe the distribution - one flake per

archaeologist at work there.....
p.s. - is this somehow related to "beaker culture" or has the thread
