Forensic science carbon dating mummies

The bones were carbon-dated to between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago when Europe was occupied by two species of human.They were the Neanderthals, who had arrived from Africa tens of thousands of years earlier, and the more recent modern humans, also known as Cro-Magnons. For over a century, the female mummy has resided in the German museum, its cause of death unknown.Now new research suggests that the likely cause was blunt force trauma, though the female also suffered from Like Us on Facebook Very little was known abou t the mummy before this study, as the mummy was brought to Germany in the 1900s with no records.A subsequent DNA study by David Reich & Svante Pääbo titled: "An early modern human from Romania with a recent Neanderthal ancestor:" Terms the specimen "Oase-1" and re-dates it to 37,00042,000-years-old.Oase-1 belongs to the Y-dna haplogroup F, which is carried by most males in Eurasia today. Study quote: We then find that the Oase 1 individual shares equally as many alleles As is always the case with White people, and information regarding race; there is always the likelihood of falsehood or misinformation."Despite an only minimal external skin lesion of the forehead the complete face and central skull bones are destroyed.The fact that the face still has retained an almost normal outer shape indicates that the bones were dislocated into the skull cavity post mortem." The researchers say this may have been a case of ritual homicide, a practice which has been observed in other mummies from South America.

But Whites remain incredulous, they say: this is simply Blacks with no accomplishments, trying to steal White accomplishment and history!The lower jawbone was discovered by potholers in Pestera cu Oase, the "cave with bones", located in the southwestern Carpathian Mountains of Romania in 2002.The rest of the fragments were found the following year.(The program will be shown on BBC2 at 9.30pm on May 10).The head is based on remains of one of the earliest known anatomically modern Europeans.
