    Anyone who has the curiosity of such things will be amazed at who these people were and how they may have gotten here. I have an interest in this subject DNA has shown people who thought they had always been here weren't. The "native people" of America have Asian DNA which China Russia and India are all classified as Asia.

        Well...they beat ME here by a long shot, so I guess their claims to the land could be valid.

            My wife & I attended a seminar in Florida some 10 years ago or more about this; well before the exhibit opened at the Brevard Museum. The main speaker was a woman who wrote one of the first books about it. Absolutely fascinating. They supposedly predate the Egyptians. Had no metallurgy, most died in their 30's with their teeth worn away and such. They buried the dead under water in a fetal position wrapped in a burlap type material, that was held underwater by sticks stuck through the material into the muck at the bottom. Something in the water preserved things very well. Just by a fluke, being a shift worker, I came upon a documentary when I got home from a 3 to 11 shift, about this that said some of the artifacts came from an area that long ago bridged northern France to Spain which has been under water for thousands of years since. The whole thing just blows my mind. Thank you for the link!

              And here, I always thought it was the Hekawi Indians.

                And the Hekawes were from the Bronx.

                At that time the oceans were narrower and frozen. The thought was these people may have crossed the ice from Southern France and hunted seals for food. Further North arrowheads, ax heads were found and the method of making them was close to what early man in France did. Traces of human settlements have been found out offshore on the ocean bottom which made sense as the sea could have been a source of food. A lot can change over a thousand years. Here's another weird thing Peruvian DNA was found in some of the people living today in New Zealand. And Polinesans today share the DNA of tribes that existed in Southern Alaska.

                  Were the Hekawes wearing New York wrist watches?
