‘Upside Down’ the Peopling of Latin America: a Summary and On-going Research
Dr. Bruce Bradley, Emeritus Professor, University of Exeter, UK.
This presentation summarizes the current evidence of the early human presence in Latin America from northern Mexico (Chiquihuite Cave) to the southern tip of South America (Fell Cave). It will focus on recent and on-going archaeological research with an emphasis on my own collaborative work, specifically in Brazil and Uruguay. Implications for the peopling of North America will also be briefly discussed. While genetic evidence is important, it is beyond the scope of this presentation other than a cautionary comment.
