ANTH 318 1-25-08 South American Boats - An archaeologist as an experiment built a boat in the style that he believe the Incans built their boats - bundles of reeds bundled together - 2 masts attached in an “A” frame for the sail - 2 pontoons - a paddle in the back to act as a rudder Paleo-Indian Boatbuilding: North America - less art history evidence for what boats of the time look like - dugouts go back at least 5000 years; we believe skin boats go back about as far - hard to find archaeological evidence because the boats were made out of perishable materials - Lots of stone tools are found, although stone tools are not the only kinds of tools used How did people originally come to settle America? - There is some evidence that people did not originally come to America only over the Bering land bridge - Tools in the archaeological record support this, but not strong support - Sites associated with coastal peoples are now underwater, making it harder to find evidence Dugout Canoes: 3 Regions
