Beringia: humans were here
It was an extraordinary ancient land filled with fantastic creatures and intrepid people.

ALEX ROSLIN, Special to The Gazette

Beringia is thought by a handful of renegade scientists to be a prehistoric homeland for aboriginal people who later spread across the Americas and the key to one of archeology's greatest Holy Grails - figuring out how humans first got to this continent.

This July, Jacques Cinq-Mars, a renowned archeologist living in Longueuil, is heading to Beringia - a vast territory that once spanned the Yukon, Alaska and Siberia - in hopes of resolving a controversy he unleashed nearly 20 years ago when he chanced upon a curious-looking cave in the Yukon's Keele Mountain Range, perched on a ridge high above the Bluefish River.

Here, at a site known as the Bluefish Caves, Cinq-Mars's team discovered something that would turn archeology on its ear and has fuelled debate ever since - a chipped mammoth bone that appeared to have been fashioned into a small harpoon point. Radiocarbon dating showed the bone to be 28,000 years old.

you going to do a piece on this in the magazine?

you know what has always fascinated me? There are reports of an island in the Atlantic that was settled by Spain. Settled to the point that they built a monastary and everything. Then, one day when they were going to deliver supplies, the ships were unable to find the island. It had disappeared.

It was a fairly large island, actually.
