A European Link?

In recent years, a few archaeologists have proposed that hunters and gatherers in Ice Age Europe may have tracked large game animals north and west, following the Atlantic coast and eventually the margins of the polar ice pack until reaching North America. These archaeologists base their theory on similarities between stone tools used by Paleoindians in North America and those used by peoples in ancient Europe. Recent genetic analyses, however, do not support this hypothesis, supporting instead migration from east Asia via the Bering land bridge.
