1. Pre-Columbian Discoveries and Exploration
Cecil Jane, ed., The Voyages of Christopher Columbus ( London, 1930), 259.
The initial date of arrival south of the ice and the primary role of the ice-free corridor continue to be controversial. Recent work in Alberta and British Columbia suggests that there was no human presence between 20,000 and 14,000 years ago; the first evidence of human occupance in the corridor dates to 10,700 before the present. If earlier dates for sites farther south are confirmed, this may invalidate the "ice-free corridor" theory and suggest that the initial Paleo-Indian advance into the continent came down the Pacific coast. See James A. Burns, "PaleontologicalPerspectives on the Ice-Free Corridor,"
