Brazil’s Nature Museum exhibits evidence of man’s arrival in the Americas

Americas Now

In 1973, a Brazilian archaeologist journeyed to an area of ancient rock and thorn forests in the remote, northeastern part of the country. She wanted to see for herself some cave paintings which had been found there.

Her research led to the discovery of some of the best preserved prehistoric art and relics in the world. They have also challenged the classical theory of when and how humans first arrived in the Americas.

Niede Guidon has achieved her life’s ambition by opening a museum to display those discoveries.
