The Search for the First Americans: Perspectives from Western North America

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The archaeological record is comprised of artifacts, often found buried in archaeological sites, which reveal patterns of past human cognition and behavior. Archaeological evidence indicates that humans were present in the Americas by at least 14,500 years ago and most probably initially migrated from northeast Asia during the last glacial period. 

The initial timing and route of entry into the Americas is not clearly understood; however, efforts to discover, excavate, and interpret early archaeological evidence of the first Americans continue to reveal important information about this exciting chapter of human history. 

We've reached capacity for this event and registration is now closed.
