"Geography, Demography and Time Depth: Explaining how Dene-‐Yeniseian is possible."
Edward Vajda (Western Washington University) Dene-Yeniseian Workshop, March 24, 2012
Archaeology, human genetics, linguistics, and folklore studies often yield what seem to be conflicting evidence of human prehistory when in fact they tell different parts of the same story. This presentation unites evidence from disparate branches of the study of human prehistory in a new synthesis to explain how the Dene-Yeniseian linguistic hypothesis fits with what other branches of science have revealed about the peopling of the Americas from North Asia in the late Pleistocene and Early Holocene.
