The first humans who crossed from northeast Asia into North America quickly ran into an impassable roadblock: a towering wall where two continental ice sheets met.
How humans passed through or around that obstacle to populate the continent is the big question scientists have long sought to answer.
And if you look at a map, you can see a lot of this ice-free corridor area is in Alberta, so Alberta is very critical to this story.
But if you imagine the ice-free corridor as almost as a zipper opening from north and south, you can see the area around Grand Prairie is almost a bottleneck area in this opening process. We were approached by some colleagues from Denmark looking at what they call E-DNA, that is environmental DNA, which is DNA that might be preserved in soils and in sediments.
