There is much conjecture on who first settled the Americas. Some adhere to the Clovis First hypothesis, as evidenced by the characteristic stone points found around North America.  Others favor an earlier arrival model where Paleo-Indians arrived 16,000 or more years ago. And a few believe that our country was settled as far back as 50,000 years ago.

Join us as Bjarne Kristiansen helps us examine the archaeological record to determine which hypothesis makes the most sense…today.

Refreshments follow the lecture
