First Peoples in a New World : Populating Ice Age America, Hardback Book

First Peoples in a New World : Populating Ice Age America Hardback



Over 15,000 years ago, a band of hunter-gatherers became the first people to set foot in the Americas.

They soon found themselves in a world rich in plants and animals, but also a world still shivering itself out of the coldest depths of the Ice Age.

The movement of those first Americans was one of the greatest journeys undertaken by ancient peoples.

In this book, David Meltzer explores the world of Ice Age Americans, highlighting genetic, archaeological, and geological evidence that has revolutionized our understanding of their origins, antiquity, and adaptation to climate and environmental change.

This fully updated edition integrates the most recent scientific discoveries, including the ancient genome revolution and human evolutionary and population history.

Written for a broad audience, the book can serve as the primary text in courses on North American Archaeology, Ice Age Environments, and Human evolution and prehistory.
