New Publication by Holliday, Haynes, and Former SOA Students

Professor Vance Holliday, Regents’ Professor Emeritus Vance Haynes, Josh Reuther (PhD Arizona, 2013), Shane Miller (PhD Arizona, 2014), Todd Surovell (PhD Arizona, 2003), and a cast of dozens published a paper on “Current evidence allows multiple models for the peopling of the Americas” in the journal Science Advances. The authors, led by Ben Potter (University of Alaska-Fairbanks), present a perspective on routes taken by the earliest settlers of the Americas from Beringia past massive glacial ice into the continent. In recent years there has been a debate regarding the most likely route, but the authors argue that research on all sides of the arguments have minimized or ignored key data to push a particular perspective.
