The ‘Land Bridge’ theory bites the dust

If you have been at Little Heath School since Year 7, of if you were at another school that taught about Native American societies you might recall being told that the first humans in the Americas traveled as a hunter gatherer across a land bridge from Asia that connected with Alaska about 13,000 years ago.

It looks now as if there were humans in the Americas long before – as set out in this news report.

This is another really interesting example of how knowledge is sometimes temporary – we have to be prepared to question what we think we already know about the world in general, and our past in particular.
