Divers transport Hoyo Negro skull. The discovery of this remarkably well-preserved specimen by divers has, for the first time, allowed researchers to perform both genetic and morphological analyses from a single, ancient individual. Washington-based archaeologist and paleontologist James Chatters and his colleagues today May 15 published in Science their analysis of the ancient individual. The well-preserved ancient skeleton, which includes facial bones and teeth, helps to resolve the debate among scientists of whether ancient Native Americans arrived in the Americas from Asia through Beringia in a single migration sometime between 26, and 14, years ago.
