1976, 1963 and 1966 are "new findings". These are the dates of the 
articles that Johannessen sites. Both the 1963 and 1966 study are based 
upon the same core (as Johannessen notes on p. 175, the authors of the 
1966 report no longer feel that these grains necessarily represent maize).

The 1976 article is by the same author as the 1963 dissertation. Is this 
a new core, or just a 13 year delay in publication? (I will check this 
out in a couple days, and provide a more thorough critique of the 1966 

Yuri, since you seem to feel qualified to dismiss the comments of a 
botanist, perhaps you would care to share with us your botanical training 
and experience that allows you to make these authoritative statements.
