Paleo Beringia Map

This map depicts the so-called Bering land bridge, also known as Beringia, an ice-free corridor that emerged at the end of the Ice Age and connected Asia with the Americas. This corridor (indicated by the arrow) may have connected modern Alaska with the central Great Plains and served as a migration route into North America between 14,500 and 14,000 years ago. The shaded areas on the map indicate land then above sea level, and the large white masses on either side of the land bridge are the Cordilleran and Laurentide ice sheets.
