Turning back the clock of human arrival in Alaska’s interior

Humans are thought to have first migrated to North America from Asia over the Bering land bridge into modern day Alaska. Eventually, these peoples moved inland and southward as they began to colonize the rest of North America. The first steps of human migration into the rest of the continent can be seen in the early human settlements of the interior of Alaska. A study presented in one of yesterday morning’s poster session shows that human occupation of central Alaska happened earlier than previously thought.
