Some 11,500 years ago one of America's earliest families laid the remains of a 3-year-old child to rest in their home in what is now Alaska. The discovery of that burial is shedding new light on the life and times of the early settlers who crossed from Asia to the New World, researchers report in Friday's edition of the journal Science.
The “Young & Tender” thesis crossed my mind as soon as I read about the location of the body, that it had been “cremated” and the fire pit.
Gee, those glaciers are shrinking.
And apparently global warming was even killing the children back then!
