This paper takes as its starting point the theory that Eskimos came to the Americas from Paleolithic Europe, then compares the artwork of both cultures to see if there are any similarities to support this hypothesis. In addition to the meat of the argument, deLaguna presents a concise history of the process by which the scholarly community came to this now-mainstream conception of how the Americas were settled, making the piece both an interesting exercise in cross-cultural art history and a convenient history of the scholarship of American settlement. The article contains extensive illustrations and plates to support the text, which is rich with citations for further study of this still-current topic in prehistoric antiquity.
