Rethinking the Peopling of the Americas
For more than sixty years, the prevailing scenario of the peopling of the Americas envisioned Clovis-era mammoth hunters walking access a temporary land bridge connecting Siberia and Alaska at the waning of the last Ice Age. Now, new data from the Southwest and elsewhere are challenging this model.
Archaeology Southwest Magazine (Vol. 14, no. 2), reexamines one of the great questions in American archaeology, starting with broad perspectives, and then focusing on evidence from southwestern sites.
As a supplement to the Spring 2000 issue of Archaeology Southwest Magazine, Dr. Jonathan Mabry has compiled a set of resources for further study concerning the topic of peopling of the New World.
