Prehistoric Peopling of the New World


Peopling of the New World II


This map shows the prehistoric migration of people into the Americas. The map shows areas inhabited by farming cultures, areas of independent Artic influence, areas of early food domestication and monumental ceremonial centers, and areas inhabited by hunting-gathering groups. Probable routes for migration and cultural diffusion are also indicated. There is an inset map of Beringia, the land-bridge between Asia and the Americas that prehistoric people used when migrating to the Americas.
