When Scientists Studied Two Infants’ Skeletons, They Discovered Ancient Secrets Locked Inside Their DNA

An anthropology professor and his team are excavating a burial site in central Alaska. As the group painstakingly brush away the soil, they come across a striking find: the remains of two infants. Since this site is around 11,500 years old, they’re looking at human skeletons from the earliest North American settlers. And as it turns out, these tiny bones hold a stunning secret about Native American history.
