-important migration: Europe asia Africa to north and south America or ‘new world’ -how do we get from Africa to north and south America? 1. Through Beringia Land Bridge-a piece of water that separates Alaska and Russia at times when sea level is very low. 2. 100,000 years ago and again 12,000 years ago-a lot of North America crossing beriginia and following them to Canada then to north America. Lots of exposed area and people are able to move. Coastal migration-requires boat but doesn’t need the time for the sea level to rise and fall. And you can move rapidly up and down. Problem is that it is difficult to find archaeological evidence for it because sea level has changed and everything changed. Most of the coast is underwater. 3. ___ Theory- many people came from Europe into new England. Not widely accepted. Based on tool styles but no sites. **Beringia Land Bridge and Coastal migration is the best one.** -Monte Verde in Chile-15,000 years ago-important about is that its all the way at the southern tip of south America. People had to go all the way in the line by 15,000 years ago. It indicates they are moving rapidly and were already occupying the coast up and down of it. but they are probably all underwater now. =( -Mega fauna start to die 10-15,000 years ago in north and south America. Not surprising because people are coming thru and hunting them until nothings left. -Clover’s point-the most important tool in North America around 12,000 years ago.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
