Some of the earliest settlers of America may have come from Australia, southern Asia, or the Pacific, new research suggests.

Bass: Medicine Crow cranium (1976)
It compares favorably in age with other well documented human skeletons from the Plains area, such as Lansing Man (Kansas) (3579 B.C.). Metrically, (with a cranial index of 76.7) and morphologically the Medicine Crow cranium falls well within the range of other early or middle Archaic skeletons.

American Journal of Physical Anthropology 114:146–155 (2001)
The Lansing cranium, placed at 5000–6000 BP by conventional radiocarbon dates (Bass, 1973), was pronounced by Hrdlicka (1903) to show no differences from recent groups in the region. It is, however, long, narrow, and high, and atypical of any recent Plains group.

The Head-forms of the Italians as Influenced by Heredity and Environment. Franz Boas and Helene M. Boas, Americah Anthropologist. 15: 163-188 (1913)
Boas found that had shape (long or short) can change significantly in a single generation, do only (apparently) to changes in environment. The item below about changes in Medieval skulls might have been due to changes in climate that took place in that period. And the changes in cranial index that occurred among native Americans also seems to have accompanied a change in habitat.

Times: Medieval skulls (2007)
A study into the mysterious changing skull shape of medieval man casts serious doubt on current theories.

Old Vero Man not as old as originally thought
Vero man was originally misdated because the extinct Ice Age animal fossils around it were not as old as paleontologists had claimed. That is, they did not "go extinct" as soon as the glacial ice melted. Title should read, "Ice Age animals associated with Vero man survived longer than originally thought".

Johannessen: American crop plants in Asia before A.D. 1500 (1998)
Maize ears were reported from an archaeological excavation of a rock tomb of Han Dynasty times (221 B.C.-A.D. 220) in Maowen (or Meng Wen) County, Sichuan Province, dating to about 2000 B.P. A notice of this appeared in the Beijing Evening News, a small, modern Chinese newspaper. The article claimed that maize cars were used there as funerary objects during Hanwei times, in the same way that maize had been used by American Indians. Wang Jaiyou, currently of the Sichuan Provincial Museum, has reported on this site. The information was supposedly being followed up by archaeologists in Cheng Du (Zhang Xiaohua 1983). But in July 1998 I learned that since the "establishment archaeologists" did not believe maize could be that old in China, the 14C-dating of it was deemed unnecessary, and the ears were apparently not even saved. The early date for maize in northern Sichuan was accepted by certain government archaeologists in Beijing anyway. They also accepted a date for peanuts at circa A.D. 300. as well as two finds of Neolithic peanuts by Wang Dayou (1988: 282).

Alfred Watkins: Early British Trackways, Moats, Mounds, Camps, and Sites (1922)
It is not easy to realise that many British roads were as ancient to the Roman invaders as the Roman remains are to us.

Alfred Watkins: The Old Straight Track (1925)

John Michell: The View Over Atlantis (1975) p. 28
The straight roads of Britain could hardly have been less than 1500 years old at the time of the Roman invasion, and many must be even older. It has often been noted as a curiosity that roads attributed to the Romans are closely linked with  prehistoric monuments, many quite insignificant as landmarks and some already in ruins by the time the Romans saw them.
