The popular belief remains North America was first populated circa 12,000 BC via the Bering land bridge in a single migration episode. This is still taught in some college undergrad anthro classes.

Most practicing anthropologists now accept there were at least 4 separate migrations, possibly more, with the oldest before 35,000 BC. Lingochronology (studying the rate languages change over time) suggest possibly 50,000 years, as the various Native American languages would not have evolved from a single language in less time. Some of the native tongues are different as Swedish from Japanese -- completely different structure and syntax. Recently, mitochondrial DNA suggests a minimum of four original populations, from both northern and southern Asia, with a smattering of European and African DNA mixed in (suggesting some early seafarers got marooned in the Americas, and with no way to get home stayed and interbred with the locals.)

There are some intriguing mysteries. The Pomo culture of the California coast had legends of a land across the sea. The Chumash of Southern Calfornia suddenly developed (circa 1200 AD) large seagoing canoes nearly identical to Polynesian design down to decorative markings. Excavations in Chile found buildings exactly like ancient Japanese design. And how did Brazilian tribes know about animals like giraffes and elephants? (or for that matter, how did Egyptian mummies come to be buried with tobacco and cocaine -- plants native only to the Americas?)

So it is quite possible there were earlier populations. I am not suggesting a separate hominid species evolved in North America -- DNA from even the most ethnically pure natives show a common origin with all humankind. I submit the surge out of Africa spread faster and further than commonly believed, and involved at least some reaching the Americas.

Do you remember when Firestone found those human remains at the 40,000 year old level on the Savannah River a decade or so back Dave? Some (actually a lot) archaeologists are still having a cow over that. And fighting the conclusions formally as well. Go figure.

Of every discipline in science, Anthropology and Archeology have to be the quirkiest eh? No new discoveries are allowed until the old guard dies or something?

It looks like there have been others found.
