The origin of a mysterious civilization of America is disclosed


The international group of scientists has defined origin of the most ancient mummy of North America which, as was considered, belongs to the paleoamerikanets existing even before appearance of the main groups of indigenous people. It has turned out that remains are actually genetically close to the immigrants who have given rise to many populations of two American continents. Article of scientists is published in the Science magazine. Experts have analysed DNA emitted from a number of human remains including a mummy from the Cave of Spirits (English Spirit Cave) which is considered the oldest mummy of the person from those that have been found in North America. Her age reaches about 11 thousand years. Besides, the genomes restored from the bones and skeletons found in Lavlok's cave (the State of Nevada, the USA) in Lagoa-Santa (Brazil) in Patagonia (Chile) and on Alaska have been studied. In total researchers have defined the nucleotide sequence of 15 genomes which belonged to the ancient Americans living in the territory stretched from Alaska to Patagonia, several thousands years ago. It has allowed scientists to monitor migrations of people who mastered North and South America during the last glacial era and to prove that various indigenous people, including the most ancient, occurred from the same immigrants. Results indicate that about 14-17 thousand years ago to the south from Alaska there was a division of initial population into two branches which correspond to indigenous Americans of North and South America. One of branches quickly moved to the South, being divided into a great number of groups which then exchanged among themselves genetic material.
