Some of you may have seen the reports of evidence for humans in N America
100,000 or so years ago. Indications of butchering of mammoths. Of course
such indirect evidence is always problematic. One critic felt that the
Bering strait was too wide at that time (always the Bering strait as if no
other option was available). Answer - boats, boats, boats. After all, what
was good enough for Homo erectus (found at locations isolated by water) is
good enough for H. sapiens (or whatever).
