Long Ago Yukon will be hosting together with the Beringia Centre the second presentation in its 2016 SKYPE series ‘Encounters with First Peoples’ on Saturday, February 13th at 1 p.m. at the Beringia Centre.
Dr. Thomas Stafford, Associate Research Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark and founder and president of Stafford Research Laboratories, Inc., Boulder, Colorado will speak via SKYPE on "The Chronology of Extinction and the Human Entrance into the New World."
Dr. Stafford has an extensive research background delving into the paleontological and archaeological paleo-history of the Americas (http://www.stafford-research.com/vitae.html). He recently served as the lead researcher into secrets of Naia, the well-preserved, genetically intact skeleton of a teenage girl who lived about 13,000-12,000 years ago in what is now Mexico. This discovery among other recent finds is assisting in resolving the long-standing questions around the linkages between first Americans (Paleoamericans) and modern Native Americans.
