 Mesolithic baby remains found

Archaeologists managed to find in Finland the remains of a child who lived during the Mesolithic period. According to IFL Science, the grave contained only teeth. No bones were found at the burial site, which is approximately 6,000 years old. Enamel analysis showed that the child was about 10.5 years old. Also in the grave were two quartz arrowheads and microscopic fragments of bird feathers, including a falcon. Scientists suggest that the latest find may have been used as a decoration for the grave. This helped shed light on the burial traditions of that period.
