    covered in ice from the ice age and not covered in water like it is now.

  • Pacific Coast Migration Model

    The most likely correct theory is the Pacific Coast Migration because of the strong evidence proving this model.

Furthermore, in order for some South American sites to be established, such as Monte Verde, humans would have to have left Beringia earlier than the ice free corridor opened.
