I read in the March 10,2012 issue of New Scientist (in Brief, page 20) an article (First Americans – Iberian not Siberian) which mentions a book by Bruc Bradley and Dennis Stanford titled Across Atlantic Ice.
In their book the authors argue that Modern Humans from Europe crossed the North Atlantic in boats using technology that the Inuit use till this day, and brought their Solutrean stone technology with them. That is why it is found in some Eastern US sites.
The Solutrean idea is not new as anyone can see in Wikipedia, but since I have posted about this issue (north Atlantic entry into America) but, involving Neanderthals and not Modern Humans, and also, the southern route of entry: Neanderthals into America via Antarctica, I wanted to share it with you.
My next post will look into the Neanderthal's sea faring abilities...
