SUMMARY

Who were the first humans to inhabit North America? According to the now familiar story, mammal hunters entered the continent some 12,000 years ago via a land bridge that spanned the Bering Sea. The presence of these early New World people was established by distinctive stone tools belonging to the Clovis culture. But are the Clovis tools Asian in origin? Drawing from original archaeological analysis, paleoclimatic research, and genetic studies, noted archaeologists Dennis J. Stanford and Bruce A. Bradley challenge the old narrative and, in the process, counter traditional--and often subjective--approaches to archaeological testing for historical relatedness. Instead, Stanford and Bradley apply rigorous scholarship to a hypothesis that places the technological antecedents of Clovis in Europe, and posits that the first Americans crossed the Atlantic by boat and arrived earlier than previously thought. Bringing archaeological and oceanographic evidence to support this assertion, the book dismantles the old paradigm while persuasively linking Clovis technology with the culture of Solutrean people who occupied France and Spain more than 20,000 years ago.Stanford is the author of 'Pre-Clovis First Americans', published 2003 under ISBN 9780520227835 and ISBN 0520227832.
