The surprise discovery of traces of European ancestry in the 24,000-year-old bones of a boy unearthed in the heart of Siberia has caught the attention of Canadian experts, who say the find could rewrite the story of the people who first populated ancient Canada and the rest of the Americas.
The DNA gleaned from two ancient Siberian skeletons is related to that of modern-day Native Americans and western Eurasians, new research suggests.
The genetic material from the ancient Siberians provides additional evidence that the ancestors of Native Americans made the arduous trek from Siberia across the Bering Strait into the Americas.
‘Under the blazing hot Egyptian sun, the boy-king rose to his knees, shaken and stunned by the fall from his golden Chariot. The oncoming chariot was headed straight for him, too close and too fast to stop. Tutankhamun could see the frantic face of the driver trying to swerve the horses away….but it was too late. The horses managed to avoid him but the chariot drove straight into the nineteen year old Pharaoh, shattering his ribs and pelvis and instantly crushing his heart. The King was dead.’
Some Halloween fans take costuming to a whole other level. The wig will be just right, the make-up impeccable, the voice adjusted, and the costume scarily realistic. But even for these semi-pros, something is always missing. For all the external adornments, they will never really become the character without the real monster stuff; without the monster mojo inside; without monster DNA.
No next-of-kin was around to claim the frozen 5,300-year-old body of Ötzi the Iceman when it was found in the Italian Alps in 1991, but researchers now report that there are at least 19 genetic relatives of Ötzi living in Austria’s Tyrol region.
“These men and the ‘Iceman’ had the same ancestors,” Walther Parson, a researcher at the Institute for Forensic Medicine in Innsbruck, told the Austrian Press Agency last week.
Neolithic hunter-gatherers and farmers lived side by side without having sex for more than 2,000 years, new research suggests.
Analysis of fossil skeletons unearthed in a cave in Germany revealed that the two populations remained mostly separate for two millennia, despite living in the same region.
Archaeologists believe they have found evidence of Richard III’s ‘lost chapel’ in Towton, north Yorkshire.
While filming new archaeology television series Medieval Dead, due to air on Yesterday later this month, a team uncovered the structural remains of a building.
Medieval Dead airs on “Yesterday” on Monday 21 October. The programme will follow Sutherland and colleagues Malin Holst and Simon Richardson as they use radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis and the latest DNA profiling to shed new light on the medieval world.
About 10,000 years ago, the Neolithic age ushered in one of the most dramatic periods of human cultural and technological transition, where independently, different world populations developed the domestication of plants and animals.
