The Nature of Things Ice Bridge

It is widely believed that the first migrants to North America arrived approximately 14,000 years ago, having trekked across a land bridge spanning the Bering Strait from Siberia to Alaska. However, extraordinary new evidence supports an explosive new theory of another trip to the New World. A group of international scientists believe they have discovered evidence to prove that an earlier route was taken by brave souls from the European continent across the Atlantic Ocean during the last Ice Age. In Ice Bridge, Professor Dennis Stanford from the Smithsonian Institution and Professor Bruce Bradley from the University of Exeter seek to uncover evidence of an epic journey that the Solutrean people, from what is now France and Spain, may have taken across the Atlantic Ocean some 20,000 years ago over an ice bridge.
