Undoubtedly, the history is one of the most interesting and most
important sciences. It incorporates experience of each person and all
mankind. The history acquaints us with process of development of a
mankind. Behind acts and decisions of separate people, behind actions of

two great powers - Russia and the USA. The purpose of the given work is

land bridge that once connected Siberia and Alaska. 

That land bridge, now recalled as Beringia, was the first gateway to
Alaska. But these first visitors were hardly tourists intent on

to other parts of Alaska. While still others migrated through Alaska,
