A map shows the migration route of humans traveling from Asia to the Americas by way of the Bering land bridge. The two continents were once connected and are referred to by historians as Beringia. Did You Know?
During the late Wisconsinan glaciation, so much of Earth's water was locked up in huge ice masses that the sea level fell 280 to 350 feet below today's level. This exposed an area up to 1,000 miles wide that stretched between Siberia and Alaska, called Beringia, allowing humans to cross from Asia.
