Thanks, Hugh. Interesting stuff. Here is another article that lays out some of the critiques being offered up by many archaeologists: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/04/mastodons-americas-peopling-migrations-archaeology-science/

Yes, thanks Hugh. The peopling of North America continues to be an interesting and contentious subject! Students of North American prehistory might want to think about the following questions: how big is the sample size, is the material found in good archaeological context, what types of dating methods are used and are the dates reliable? Can the data support their claims? It is always good practice to balance being open-minded with healthy skepticism.
