The Archaeology of North America tells the fascinating story of how archaeologists investigate the orgins and prehistory of American Indians. More than 12,000 years ago, people we know as Paleo-Indians traveled from Siberia to Alaska across a land bridge that no longer exists. Archaeologists excavating at rock shelters and other sites across the continent have found many signs of the Paleo-Indian way of life, including the distinctive spearpoints with which these first Americans hunted giant game animals. Using tree-ring, radiocabon, and other dating methods, archaeologists can analyze the pottery and houses, tools and temples that they have uncovered. As a result, we know that the descendants of the Paleo-Indians and later migrants from Asia spread throughout the Americas.
