History's Shadow
University of Chicago Press

Most of the questions about Native Americans posed by scholars and investigators at the dawn of the nation had been answered by the dawn of the new millennium, though countless more have been raised and drive research by anthropologists, archaeologists, linguists, folklorists, and others. It is generally acknowledged that Indians descended from groups of wanderers who crossed the Bering Straits relatively recently, at least in terms of the human species. The Mound Builders have been laid to rest and replaced by cultural groups defined with more exactitude. Advances in archaeological technique have even made it possible to create rough chronologies of America's prehistoric peoples, a development that would surely have dazzled that first generation of prehistorians.
