Most archaeologists agree that it was during the last cold period, from 25,000 to 14,000 years ago, that humans made their way from Asia to present Alaska (Rogers, Rogers, and Martin 1992, 285). Given the submersion of Beringia since that time, there is no archaeologic evidence for this migration, although paleontologic evidence reveals the migration of large animal species—including elephants and mastodons—from Asia to the New World. Although most archaeologists in the past believed that humans moved into North America through an interior route, following an ice-free corridor through central Alaska, contemporary opinion seems to favor a route along the Pacific Coast.
