New Evidence for Diversity in Ancient Americans


Recommended Posts

Since I know just about nothing about this topic, I'll just post this

I thought it was very interesting. If my Spanish was better, I'd look up the original source, but as it is, there are probably others here better able to evaluate it!

Those huge eyes remind me of art from Ur and Sumer.

THAT would be an interesting thing to look into!

This article from stanford university was intresting:

While it is perhaps all but indisputable that land migration occurred over the Bering Strait, it is not conclusive that this path was the first or the only means of migration to the Americas. There are incongruities in the archaeological record when North and South America are compared. There are South American sites, including Monte Verde, which predate the North American Clovis remains by at least 1,000 years (Dillehay 1999 http://www.archaeolo...tures/clovis/).

These findings lend support to what has been argued to be an earlier and faster maritime migration. Furthermore, excavations across the Americas, the most recent of which unearthed coprolites in the Paisley Caves of Oregon

If Monte Verde in Chile predates the Clovis in the US. What in the world does that say about the theories that they Migrated following the heards which dispersed from asia over the land bridge through an ice corridor from north to south America?
