Monte Verde Mystery
Deadline: Monday, October 1, 2012
Scientists have dated Monte Verde, an archaeological site in Chile, as being at least 12,500 years old. Monte Verde is located 10,000 miles south of the Bering Strait, the narrow channel of water between Alaska and Russia.
The Monte Verde findings have caused archaeologists to question how early peoples migrated to this area. Artifacts discovered in North America, in places like Clovis, New Mexico, and the Topper Site in South Carolina have been shown to be "younger" than Monte Verde.
- If early peoples entered North America via the Bering Land Bridge, how is it possible that a site located close to the bottom of South America have older artifacts than in North America?
- Is there another way that early peoples could have migrated to South America?
