Archaeologists have uncovered the oldest human remains ever found in Ecuador. 

Three burials at the site of Loma Atahualpa, on the Pacific Ocean, are dated at 6-10 thousand years old. The burials were part of the Las Vegas culture. The materials at the site are transitional from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic. The stone tools in the burials are becoming studied by specialists in Japan. Russian researchers in St. Petersburg and Siberia are studying the morphological features of the human remains.
