The ancient human skeleton that was discovered in an underwater cave may have been born before it fell on her death.At the ripe age of 13,000 years, its remains are the oldest human ever found in the Americas, according to the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (link in Spanish), known as the Ina abbreviation.
Nicknamed “Naya”, the girl was 15 or 16 years old when she fell into a hole filled with 180 feet deep water and known as Hoyo Negro, or Black Hole. We learn more and more around: Based on the latest analysis, including the clues within her general bones, experts now believe Nia was born a birth months before her death.
Naya was found in Tulum, an archaeological site on the Yucatan Peninsula in southern Mexico, about two hours south of Cancun. “I have withdrawn from the cave little by little in recent years,” the Associated Press reported.
Her almost complete skeleton offers a lot of information to scientists, such as it was about 5 feet long, when the food was plentiful, and its weight was about 110 pounds.
According to the National Institute of Statistics, this distinction is important. Its long teeth and bones, which include strong bones such as the femur of the leg, indicate that it has lived through periods of famine. This Mexican institute tells scientists that life has not been easy for those people who have traveled through the Bering Passage now under water from Siberia to settle America. Instead, “it was very hard and full of scarcity.”
