Scientists have found and dated the oldest human remnants ever uncovered in the Americas — a discovery that places people genetically similar to Native Americans in Oregon more than 14,000 years ago and 1,000 years earlier than previous estimates.
Using radiocarbon dating and DNA analysis, an international team concluded that fossilized feces found five feet below the surface of an arid cave are significantly older than any previous human remains unearthed in the Americas.
Don’t you love the idea tha someday scientists are going to be rooting around in your bowel movements to understand what horribly unbalanced diets most modern Americans enjoy?
I certainly do. It’s chili with cheese and onions tonight, followed by a big helping of jambalaya.
