MEXICO CITY – A scientific reconstruction of one of the oldest sets of human remains found in the Americas appears to support theories that the first people who came to the hemisphere migrated from a broader area than once thought, researchers say.

Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History on Thursday released photos of the reconstructed image of a woman who probably lived on Mexico's Caribbean coast 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. She peeks out of the picture as a short, spry-looking woman with slightly graying hair.

Anthropologists had long believed humans migrated to the Americas in a relatively short period from a limited area in northeast Asia across a temporary land corridor that opened across the Bering Strait during an ice age.

"All of the current genetic evidence points to Northeast Asia as the main source for Native Americans," Malhi said.

  • Let me get this straight....current evidence suggests most Native Americans MIGRATED here. Very interesting since some seem to think they just sprung up out of the earth.

    Seriously, it was cool info. I have always loved history.
