"Paradigm Lost: A Late Glacial Colonization of the Americas" with Bruce Bradley

MONDAY, APRIL 21: Join the Humanities Institute for a provocative presentation that challenges conventional wisdom about when humans first populated the Americas. Bruce Bradley, Professor of Archaeology at the University of Exeter, will speak on “Paradigm Lost: A Late Glacial Colonization of the Americas,”  in which he presents evidence that “even before ancient Siberians, the Americas were explored by Ice Age Palaeolithic people from southwestern Europe.  The evidence is archaeological, ecological, oceanographic, ethnological and genetic.” As Bradley notes, “the idea has been considered heretical in the scientific community, but this work challenges the deeply-held beliefs of academics and the public to visualize a new paradigm of how human beings came to settle the last empty land masses on the planet.”

Bradley’s research has taken him to projects across the world, from Britain to Lebanon, Kazakhstan, Russia, and North America. In addition to his Exeter position, he holds Research Associate appointments at the Smithsonian Institution, the University of Texas and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. His work has been featured in numerous documentaries, including NOVA and the Smithsonian Channel,  and his work has been funded by International Research Exchanges, National Science Foundation of America, National Geographic, and the Leverhulme Trust.

His talk will be held in CWY 109 (Military Sciences Building) and begins at 6:00pm, followed by a reception.
