According to Dr. Albert Goodyear, an archaeologist with University of South Carolina and co-author on the new study, this independent study is yet another example of how the Topper site with its various interdisciplinary studies has connected archaeology with other significant studies of the Pleistocene.
Dr. Goodyear showed Dr. LeCompte where the Clovis level was in order to accurately sample of sediments for the Younger Dryas Boundary layer.

Dr. Albert Goodyear, an archaeologist at the University of South Carolina, has been working for 10 years at a prehistoric site in Allendale County that could change the history of American archaeology.
His next monthlong dig is scheduled to begin May 5, and Goodyear needs some help. But Goodyear drew international attention in 2004 when he found stones believed to have been sharpened into spear points by humans. Those points were carbon-dated to nearly 50,000 years ago, which would signal an earlier human culture, called "pre-Clovis." Evidence of pre-Clovis people is popping up at sites around North America, but Topper contains the oldest carbon-dated artifacts, Goodyear said.

``It is now reasonable to think of humans living on this landscape perhaps 15,000 to 20,000 years ago,'' said University of South Carolina archaeologist Albert Goodyear, who is helping to excavate the site. ``It's the dawn of a new chapter in what was already a good book.''
Goodyear and his team of archaeologists first uncovered the tools three years ago along a section of the river in Allendale County owned by Clariant, a Swiss-based chemical company.

Al Goodyear, who was a University of South Carolina archaeologist, used to regularly lead expeditions to the Topper site.
The artifacts he and his colleagues discovered raised questions about when humans first arrived in the Americas. Goodyear claimed that radiocarbon dating shows that some of the primitive tools from the Topper site were 50,000 years old. Their age was surprising because of the popular notion that humans migrated to the New World about 13,000 years ago by crossing a land bridge between Asia and Alaska. Goodyears conclusions were controversial, and they received a lot of attention. They also fascinated Levy, who visited the Topper site five or so times while Goodyear was in charge.
