There are quite a few sites across the state that have the distinctive remains associated with Clovis people, the earliest well documented archeological culture in North Americaabout 13,000-13,500 years old (11,000-11,500 B.C.). One of the largest and most important Clovis sites in North America is deep in the heart of Texas, the Gault site near Georgetown (see the Gault site exhibit). There is also tantalizing evidence that people may have visited Texas several thousand years earlier.
That depends. Most land in Texas (96.7%) is privately owned and therefore so are most archeological sites. You must have the landowner's permission to visit archeological sites on private land. Fortunately, some of the most interesting sites in Texas are on public land and can be visited at certain state and national parks. Keep in mind that there really isn't much to see at most archeological sites unless excavations are underway.
South Dakota Archaeology FAQ
The oldest site we know if is the Jim Pitts site, which was located about 20 miles west of Custer, in the Black Hills. The earliest inhabitants of the site have been identified as belonging to the Goshen complex, and it has been dated by radiocarbon to about 11,300 years ago. Note that this is the oldest site we know of now. We do not really know when the first people came to the Americas.
Archeologists often identify prehistoric archeological sites by finding the chips left from making stone tools like arrow and dart points. Cooking stones and broken pottery are sometimes found, as well as bones from ancient dinners. Historic sites often are marked by broken glass and china, wells, building foundations, and domestic plants. Archeologists systematically walk across areas looking for these artifacts and other signs of archeological sites.
Today when an archeological site is formally recorded by a legitimate archeologist, it is always assigned a unique site number, and may or may not have a name. Most archeologists name the sites they excavate or study in detail. Sites are named for landowners, landscape features, and various other namesakes and the names may not be unique or easy to reference. In Texas alone, for example, there are dozens of sites that have the name "Smith" as part of the site name.

Frequently Asked Questions in Cosmology
Of course the Universe has to be older than the oldest stars in it. So this question basically asks: which estimate is wrong - Both The age of the Universe is determined from its expansion rate: the Hubble constant, which is the ratio of the radial velocity of a distant galaxy to its distance. The radial velocity is easy to measure, but the distances are not. Thus there is currently a 11% uncertainty in the value of the Hubble constant measured directly by the Hubble Space Telescope.
