A group of archeologists uncovered the body of a baby which dates back to around 11,500 years ago. The experts found the remnants at a burial place in Alaska.
This is the first time scientists unearth the remains of an infant’s from North America. The experts found the skeletons beneath the cremated remains of a child in a circular pit. The ditch comprises objects of two stone projectile and four antler rods. All the objects were ornamented with red ochre which researchers named as “grave goods”.
A team of archeologist form the University of Alaska Fairbank closely analyzed the Ice Age baby skeleton.
The experts examined the skeletal and dental relics of the two bodies of infants. Later on, researchers informed that one of the babies is older than the other one.
Ben Potter, an archeologist of University of Alaska along with a team of experts carried out the most latest archeological study. Earlier, the scientists uncovered a cremated three year old baby from the same location. However, this time researchers found the babies 15 inch below from the burial place of that three year old child.
Moreover, Potter informed that these new discoveries that occurred in a really short time period provide significant information about the death rituals of the ancient Americans.
