the skeleton is likely that of a 24-year-old aboriginal woman
24 years old ... really? Not 20 or 25 or early 20s or mid 20s?
WTF did they count, tree bone rings?

She was found with her perfectly-preserved birthday cake with 24 candles. Frosting spelled out Happy Birthday, Ugg.

No. They looked at her pelvis.

Look for the pubic symphysis, which is the joint located in the pelvis. The older the person at death, the more pitted and craggy these bones will be. Forensic anthropologists will compare this against a database of standard markers to learn the age of the skeleton.

I’m impressed that the Australians were in California so long ago. Heehee.
