    Not on the islands so much, but along the coastlines of south and central America.

    The original method was to simply impose quota on the natives and let them sort it out, with no natives some other method would have to be found.

    Of course with no natives the question does arise how the colonists would know/find the location of the deposits, as you correctly point out.



    That sounds plausible yes.[B

    Do we have historical examples of Europeans landing on a large *unpopulated* landmass ?

    The Norse in Greenland /Iceland- and Palestine before the creation of Israel

    Possibly the Falklands- although the Argentinians claim they were 'there, first'...

    the Azores....

That is why you can't really use Y to trace back Amerind Tribes. The problem with using DNA gene markers is we have only a small sample to work with and there may well have been populations with gene markers we have not found yet. These Altaic MTA gene markers are something I will have to study. It is possible they traveled WEST as well as East.

        While you can be a wizard with maps and charts, there are other maps out there that show the Ice Pack stretching to the South of Iceland and the Ice reaches from North America to Europe.

        Hi Pruitt:
        There is very strong evidence of Chinese travel to the 'land of Fu Sang' before the Vikings.

        European appearing skulls in North America, pre Columbian, may likely have been Jomon people.

          I believe there were a number of Japanese fishermen that ended up on the West Coast as well. Storms and ocean drift could have taken them there. They did a DNA study on the Haida a while back and found there was a Mitichondria gene marker from Taiwan in the results!

          I find it interesting to read this kind of stuff. I once used to be more dogmatic and certain what had to have happened. Now I just lay it out there and those who want to can check it out. One of the problems is the write us in South America are in Spanish or Portuguese. How many Americans read these languages?

          Yes there is some interesting DNA studies out there that indicate the Chinese went across the Pacific.

            actually- you could be right . Farley Mowatt in the Farfarers claims that the Jacakatars' came form Britain to Newfoundland long before the Vikings.

              Well according to the article not only is the book highly speculative (far beyond the usual amount) he has outright fiction in it. It also seems few scientists or historians agree with him.

                HI DER:
                The book is an interesting read as a novel. Technically, the route may have been possible during the Roman warm period.

                  surely if larger herbivores survive in the wild some of the larger predators will as well? This isn't a good thing. Some of them were meat mountains with teeth.

                    The Paleo-Indians probably killed off what was left of the Cave Bears, Lions and Cheetahs in North America. This still left the Puma, Jaguar, and various Wolves. My question is whether they had to face the giant terror birds from South America. They did not die out until around 15,000 years ago. This puts them here with the Paleo-Indians.
