He’s become a leading proponent of an idea that is making waves in Anthropology: that North America was populated by the migration of pre-Clovis cultures from Europe. Stanford is the keynote speaker 7:30 PM Sat Aug 17, at the Rasmuson Center, as part of the 2013 Paths Across the Pacific Conference. With KCAW’s Robert Woolsey.
