Each new discovery provided either more precision, supporting early discoveries, or pushed the date of initial habitation back a few thousand more years. Refinements have continued into the present. Linguists have identified ties of language and culture which follow the patterns of migration noted by the archeologists. Biologists and geneticists have likewise used new DNA tests to match indigenous societies across vast expanses of time and space. The continued application of carbon dating has provided ever-greater specificity to the discoveries, providing a higher level of confidence in the collective results.
