Found the remains of the first people of America?

Archaeologists led by Arturo Gonzalez (Arturo González), the Director of the desert Museum in Saltillo (Museo del Desierto), Mexico, is lifted from the bottom of the Caribbean sea the skeleton women ages 13 600 years, reports National Geographic. This finding, dubbed the “eve of Naharon” (Eva de Naharon), was first discovered four years ago in a deep cave near the coast of Cancun (Cancún). Together with it there were skulls and bones of three people who lived on the territory of modern Mexico long before the first settlements in Egypt.

“We don’t know where they came from these people: whether they arrived from the depths of the continent, from the jungles, or sailed from the Atlantic”, – said the head of research. “But we believe that these findings – the oldest in the Americas. They will certainly change our understanding of how migrated ancient people”.

According to the generally accepted version, the colonization of the American continents occurred 11-14 thousand years ago, when the ice of the Bering Strait to North America came the tribes from Siberia. However “eve of Naharon” might disprove this theory, because its age exceeds the age of the remains found in Asia and North America at the time of the proposed resettlement. In addition, the shape of the skulls found, according to archaeologists,closer to Asian than North Asian type. Continue reading

Near Yucatan was found the skeleton of a prehistoric girl

No wonder Cooper and Mayne Reid’s so popular in Russia. Science has proven that the ancestors of modern American Indians are the Siberians. They moved to America anywhere from 18 to 26 thousand years ago on earth the isthmus across the Bering Strait. Scientists knew about this before, there were certain genetic developments, but they didn’t have the main evidence — fossils. And here they are lucky enough. They found almost completely preserved skeleton of a prehistoric girl in an underwater cave near Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. A thorough analysis of the skeleton confirms the link between the ancient and modern Siberians, American Indians.

This was reported in the latest issue of the leading international scientific journal “Case”. The study’s authors write, they analyzed the genetic material transferred by inheritance on the maternal side – the material was taken from the wisdom tooth of skeleton girls, raised to the surface by divers. As shown by the analysis of the tooth, the girl lived about 12 thousand years ago and belonged to a genetic tree of Asian origin that is found only in American Indians. Continue reading
