As I alluded to in an earlier post, there is evidence suggesting that the Western Hemisphere has been visited by a number of people from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands centuries before Columbus.

Going even further back, arguments have been made that there were migrations beside the Bering land bridge crossing when the sea levels were much lower during the last ice age. It's quite fascinating stuff in that we don't give our ancient ancestors enough credit to keep exploring what's over that next horizon.
