Historians propose various theories on early migrations
Helena Independent Record ^ | September 23, 2007 | Marga Lincoln

European prehistoric artifacts similar to ones in North America, such as Clovis points, have led some scholars to suggest that European prehistoric people crossed the Atlantic Ocean in boats, said Vrooman. And research in Siberia, where the Bering land bridge supposedly originated, reveals no solid evidence of Clovis points originating there, he said... A site in Brazil yields possible evidence of human habitation 37,000 years ago, long before the land bridge is believed to have existed, said Vrooman... Helena Forest archaeologist Carl Davis said it's also likely that early people walked down the frozen coast from Alaska to Baja thousands of years ago. "I think the Pacific coastline route was a viable route because much of the ocean water was locked up in huge continental ice sheets, leaving vast tracts of shoreline exposed, as well as an ice-free corridor coming down from the Yukon," Davis said. "Unfortunately any archaeological evidence of this migration has long since disappeared under hundreds of feet of water," he said. It's also possible that later migrants crossed the Pacific and arrived on the coast of South America, he said.

It occurred to me yesterday that ‘Arlington Springs Woman’ may have been killed by the comet that struck Canada 13,000 year ago.

My apologies, that’s the image that’s supposed to appear, that’s what I get for trying to steal bandwidth. The next posting was actually funnier (IMVHO), and the topic itself is probably of interest. :’)
