Overview

This volume addresses key issues involved in the process by which the first Americans made it to the New World. Key topics discussed include the cultural dynamics of human migration and adaptation, as well as the nature and status of the archaeological record of their migratory processes; the cultural and natural forces forming this record; the archaeologist's perception of data, analytical techniques, and conceptual discordances; and a reconsideration of criteria for evaluating variability in the record. The book also attempts to explicate and enlarge on the theoretical, methodological and conceptual tools employed to guide research and understand the archaeological record. This is a book for archaeologists, anthropologists, and others interested in how and why early people may have come to the Americas.
