(4 out of 5 stars)
"This interesting program offers alternatives to the accepted theory that the first Americans appeared in the new world roughly 13,000 years ago. The theory originated in the 1930s, based on discoveries made at Clovis, New Mexico. The spear points found there led many to believe that they belonged to the earliest explorers of the continent.
However, recent excavations in both North and South America have revealed that humans already inhabited the Americas, with some sites indicating the possibility that humans were in the Americas as long as 20,000 years ago or more. Various theories are given as to how this might have happened, including the remote possibility that people came west from Europe, instead of the usually accepted view that people came across a land bridge from Asia.
Four stars. More research needs to be done on the subject, but we may have to rewrite the history books when it's over!"
