Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the paperback release of Beringia: Archaic Migrations into North America by Robert D. Morritt.

This volume is a study of the migration of cultures from Asia to North America from the earliest period of recorded history. Evidence is presented of a connection between the North American Athabaskan language family and Siberia, together with comparisons and examinations of the implications of linguistics from anthropological, archaeological and folklore perspectives. An exploration of the origins of the earliest people in the Americas, this book covers topics including Siberian, Dene and Navajo Creation myths; linguistic comparisons between Siberian Ket Navajo and Western Apache; and comparisons between indigenous groups that appear to share the same origin.
