Well, to begin with I can say that my views fall on the side of the geneticists rather than with the anthropologists who study morphology. “More math, less art.” I haven’t paid very much attention to Luzia for several years, because it is a genetic dead end, but I seem to remember that the actual morphology put her in the Australian aboriginal column, rather than the African. There have been some findings on the West coast of South America than may indicate a wave of pre-Clovis immigration from Australia via Polynesia. Finally, there is no evidence that the extinct group to which Luzia belonged ever developed an advanced civilization. However, I believe there is at least one existing aboriginal population in Brazil whose morphology resembles pre-Mongoloids.
