The skeleton of a young woman, dated to almost 10,000 years old, was recently discovered by divers in Mexico. Her bones hint towards a short, hard life and raise questions about the first settlers to America.
The Ixchel skeleton, or Chan Hol 3, is one of the oldest skeletons on the American continent. What makes her stand out, though, is that she was healing from three traumatic skull injuries. Analysing her skull, and comparing it to others found in the area, led researchers to discover what might be a new group of humans. Join us to help unravel the mystery of America’s earliest settlers.
