 According to Francisco Garda Talavera, around 5000 BC the Cro-Magnon type began to diminish demographically and retreated to the west into the mountains of the Mediterranean, the Atlantic coast, and the Canary Islands, as well as the Saharan southwest and the Sudan. Yet they didn't truly disappear in the Maghreb. It is believed that 8 percent of that area's population were Cro-Magnon types during the third century BC, and that percentage has steadily dwindled.

 It seems that there could well be a connection between ancient Europeans, the aboriginal Ainu who settled in Japan, and people who inhabited parts of North America more than 7,000 years ago. (160)

  C. Turner looked at many different features of teeth, including shoveling, and variations in the number of roots of premolars and molars. By comparing large samples of teeth on many different measurements, Turner concluded that: (2) New World groups are more like Asians than like Europeans; (1) all New World groups resemble each other more than they do most Old World populations; (3) dental variation is greater in North America than in South America; (4) there are three "clusters" of New World peoples. It is very difficult, however, to estimate rates of change in these kinds of physical features, and thereby to estimate how long ago the migrations to the Americas began, but Turner's calculations estimate a date of about 12,000 years ago for the initial colonization of the New World, with two much later waves of colonizations.(26)

Pigmies, Australoids and Mongols from north-east Siberia, of whom the principal stock was Mongol, had begun to settle in America sometime about 25000 BC, moving south along its coast and across the plains. That occupation was still continuing, doubtless with some people returning in the fifth and fourth millennium BC when earth-worshipping sailors from the Mediterranean and then sea-peoples from India, trading and prospecting the Pacific and the Pacific coast of China for metals, were either blown unwillingly from north of Japan to America or they heard of the movement to those sea-girt continents and, following it, themselves also discovered America. The genius of America remained however, the genius of its already mixed American-Indian populations. Thus the splendid isolation of the vast American continent which became almost its norm, was broken spasmodically by sometimes large - sometimes small-scale contact with civilised peoples from the Old World. They fed in the highly industrialised techniques and ideas then current in India, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Mediterranean perhaps not all of them, but nearly all of them. (135)

...the Ainu are something of an historical enigma in their own right. They are a Caucasian people who occupy parts of the Japanese island of Hokkaido and the nearby Russian islands of the Kuriles and Sakhalin. They have short, sturdy bodies, a light complexion, wavy hair and some have blue eyes. The men have particularly heavy beards which they allow to grow. They are thought to be descended from an ancient circumpolar people who arrived in Japan some time over 7,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found ancient Ainu pit houses, ground-stone celts (prehistoric implements shaped like a chisel or ax-head), ground-bone projectile points, and grit-tempered, cord-marked pottery. Some of the most striking finds were the clay and stone female figurines with mask-like faces and protuberant eyes - very similar to the extremely ancient 'Venus' figurines found in Europe...It seems that there could well be a connection between ancient Europeans, the aboriginal Ainu who settled in Japan, and people who inhabited parts of North America more than 7,000 years ago.
