Title: When Did the First Americans Arrive?
Url: https://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.earthsys.first...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Who were the first Americans, when did they arrive, and from where did they come? With limited evidence, scientists have long proposed a hypothesis that linked the migration route and the timing of the migration of these ancient people to the end of the last ice age. This video segment, adapted from a NOVA television broadcast, describes how archaeologists have uncovered new evidence suggesting that the first Americans may have been able to migrate down the coast of North America, rather than waiting for an ice-free corridor to develop, implying that migration could have occurred earlier than previously thought. The segment is five minutes forty seconds in length.
