How Early Humans Inhabited the New World




Linguistic anthropologists from the University of Virginia are revealing the mystery of ancient humans. With the help of a latest technology the scientists are searching about when and how early humans occupied the New World.

The research conducted by the experts, analyzed more than 100 linguistic features. The research showed complex patterns of contact and migration among the early people who first settled the Americas.

As per the scientists the existence and settlement of Americas have been reanalyzed by them since past few years. While replacing the old belief, the scientists said that the land which connected Asia and North America during the last ice age was merely a 'bridge'.

Theoretically, it is believed that the last ice age humans lived in this refuge known as 'Beringia' for up to 15,000 years. The ancient theory also showed that after spending a long time these humans shifted to North America and Asia.
