11,500-year-old remains of toddler discovered
Find represents earliest human remains discovered in the Arctic of North America

WASHINGTON Some 11,500 years ago one of America's earliest families laid the remains of a 3-year-old child to rest in their home in what is now Alaska. The discovery of that burial is shedding new light on the life and times of the early settlers who crossed from Asia to the New World, researchers report in Friday's edition of the journal Science.

The bones represent the earliest human remains discovered in the Arctic of North America, a "pretty significant find," said Ben A. Potter of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Not other than knowing or studying under people who were involved. I haven't worked with human remains in the field, my sites haven't had people found, just what people left behind.
