Archaeologists have found fragments of the teeth of a child who lived about 6,000 years ago in a forest in Finland. According to IFL Science, no details of the bones have survived. The grave was found using iron-rich clay soil, which played an important role in burial ceremonies. On the ground, scientists noticed a spot of red ocher. The remains of the child were not preserved due to the highly acidic soil. Scientists were able to analyze the microparticles found in the grave. Enamel fragments showed that the child was no older than 10.5 years. Also found were two quartz arrowheads corresponding to the period of the Mesolithic culture and microscopic fragments of bird feathers. This find will allow scientists to assume that the child was dressed in a down jacket or buried on a down bed.
