A-final-blow-to-myth-of-how-people-arrived-in-the-Americas

From the Christian Science Monitor

FTA: For decades, archaeologists thought they knew how the story went: Humans migrated from Siberia to Alaska over the Bering land bridge during the last Ice Age, 

New research published in Nature and
 
Evidence from Bison Biology in PNAS

Regarding the ice-free corridor after the last ice age FTA:

 "...we both also agree that the first hard [archaeological] evidence in the corridor when it finally opens is post-Clovis in age, and likely from people moving north and not south."

And relatively rare for stories like this; no use of the terms 'Than Previously thought' or 'more research is needed'.
