        When Did the First Americans Arrive?

        Who were the first Americans, when did they arrive, and from where did they come? With limited evidence, scientists have long proposed a hypothesis that linked the migration route and the timing of the migration these ancient people to the end of the last ice age. However, new evidence suggests that this widely accepted hypothesis needs revision. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes how archaeologists are using this new evidence to develop a better understanding of the founding of the Americas.
