Early Americans may have arrived 2,000 years earlier than thought





A new study by anthropologists at the Texas A and M University, suggests that first Americans to come to the country 1,000 to 2,000 years earlier than the 13,500 years ago previously thought.

The team, led by Ted Goebel, an anthropology professor at Texas A and M and associate director of Texas A and M's Center for the Study of the First Americans, said that their theory indicates that the Americas wasn't settled until as late as 15,000 years ago.

He said that their hypothesis, which suggests that the migration from Alaska started about 15,000 years ago, could shift historic timelines.
