DNA in the human skeleton is then preserved. DNA can be used to research and prove whether this woman's skull had the same ancestors as Native Americans.

Scientists estimate the age at death of women aged around 15 or 16 years. This discovery verifies and clarifies some aspects of modern human movement to America. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE EXAMINER | LIVESCIENCE]
