Comment on the release of "Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America's Clovis Culture"
John Hawks comments on the hoopla around the release of a book by Dennis Stanford and Bruce Bradley titled Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America's Clovis Culture. The researchers propose that Solutrean Hunters from Western Europe reached the east coast of North American during the the height of the Last Glacial Maximum. It's an interesting hypothesis. You can judge for yourself, based on Dennis Stanford's lecture on the topic back in 2008. I posted a link to his lecture last year, the fourth lecture in a superlative series of six.
