New Analysis of 12,000 Year Old Remains of a Girl Found in a Yucatan Cenote.
New analysis by INAH of the 12,000 year old skeleton of a girl found in a cenote in the Yucatan in 2007, nicknamed “Naia,” shows that the girl traveled a long distance and suffered severe nutritional stress that scarred her bones and teeth. Half of her bones were recovered. She died at age 15-17 from a fall into the deep pit where she was found. It appears she gave birth.
