Ice Age People of the Americas and Oregon’s Ancient History

Date: 01/16/2015
Time: 09:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Multnomah Athletic Club

Description: Most of us were taught that humans migrated into the Americas at the very end of the last Ice Age, or approximately 11,000-10,000 years ago. The Bering Land Bridge was their single entry point. The story continues that people traveled down an ice free corridor, dispersed throughout North and then South America, and that they came on foot. As it turns out, however, none of this is accurate! In fact, archaeological evidence tells a very different story. Who were these ancient people? Where did they come from, what types of environments did they encounter, and what do we know about Oregon’s ancient people? Presented by Dr. Alison Stenger, Director of Research with the Institute for Archaeological Studies.
