    wanting to know more information on Beringia and when it was uncovered and available for others to travel. I am eager to provide the history of the Bering Land Bridge Theory. Thankfully after doing some thorough research I discovered some fascinating information. Australia’s first settlers arrived through boat more than 40,000 years ago, at this time the land bridge between Sunda and Sahul did not exist. The northeast Asians might have done the same during…

    prominence. This book uses science to prove why the Bering land bridge is the best hypothesis to explain the peopling of North America. The scientists mentioned in the book studied the bones of animals found in North America and Asia and compared them to draw links to the two continents (O’Neill 2004, 8). Additionally, a Canadian geologist named W.A Johnson drew a connection between fluctuations in sea levels and past periods of glaciation (O’Neill 2004, 8). This was a crucial connection because…

    Aboriginal Studies is something challenging to provide a perfect introduction of. It encompasses knowledge from fields as diverse as anthropology, sociology, history, and religious studies. It is contentious academic field that raises both difficult political and academic questions: can non-Aboriginal researchers properly engage its study? Can Western methods of observation, analysis, and teaching be applied to artifacts, knowledge and societies inherently different from Western conceptions…

    on whether humans came to the New World through the coastal route or the continental route. For both sides there is an abundant amount of compelling evidence for one to come up with their own conclusion. There are a variety of arguments for where the migration came from like: Asia, Europe, or Beringia. The Asia argument asserts the first migrants came from Siberia, the Solutrean hypothesis argues that people came from Europe (Oppenheimer et al,. 2014). In Beringia there was ice-free corridor…

    Beringia Land Bridge Response When humans were first created on Earth, they did not originally materialize in America. They emerged in a different part of the world, then migrated onwards. Because the Americas had not yet been discovered, humans could not have began there. Many animals also did not originate in America. Without animals, humans could not have existed, because in order to survive, we need food. For the reasons noted, humans could not have originated in America.…

    5 kya (Goeble et al. 2008: 1497). The Clovis were characterised by quick migrations and the hunting of large game such as mammoth. This however, has been revised with the discovery of remains in both North and South America that pre-date 13.5 thousand years. (Goeble et al. 2008: 1497) Modern arguments include a single population, and a single migration from Beringia, multiple migrations of multiple populations as a theory that combines the previous two. One possible origin of the First Nations…

    Land Bridge CR Humans aren’t originally from America because before the Ice Age there wasn’t any way to get to America. The Ice Age lowered sea levels and, consequently, exposing land. Before this time the only way over was to ride a boat, which would be difficult, because in order for this you needed to create a boat, that could float and survive across the ocean. The first humans in America originally weren’t American because before the Ice Age there wasn’t any way to get across the…

    There are many theories concerning the coming of the early people and how they arrived. After much research and archaeological dig sites four theories were created. The theories are the Beringia, Maritime, Solutrean, and the South Pacific/Atlantic. Each theory has created lots of controversy in our world. Here is what the evidence supports. The Beringia theory states that the first people came across the Bering landbridge. The glacier then retreated leaving a path towards modern day America.…

    The Native Americans arrived in the Americas by the way of the Bering and Bridge. One of the main pieces evidences of that there are recorded footprints from Eastern Siberia and the same footprints on Beringia less than 20,000 years ago. That shows that there had to be a bridge for them to cross on because there is no way the same people went all the way around. Also, there is a bridge that is there today but is covered in water. That means when the water level was lower there was a bridge…
