Lecture 1 of American Environmental History, by Dan Allosso, covers the period from about 80,000 BCE to 1492 CE. We look at the original settlement of the Americas in the context of prehistoric population movement. What we normally think of as "prehistory" helps us understand what happened when Europeans and North Americans came into contact again in 1492, after nearly 20,000 years of separation.
