    Bering Land Bridge; 3 waves

    Bering Land Bridge; 3 waves
    This was an ancient bridge made of ice that connected Asia to North America together. There were 3 significant waves, the first wave allowed it to be used a land bridge, the second wave was when many people, about 8,000-10,000 people, migrated on it. The third wave allowed people to settle like the Eskimos and Inuits in these colder lands. Historians and those studying history believe it's fascinating to just know about/ where all these people may have migrated to using the Bering Land Bridge.
