8,000 year old human skull

Part of a skull was found by two kayakers on a Minnesota river depleted by drought last September. Thinking it might be related to a missing person case or murder, Renville County Sheriff, Scott Hable, shared the skull with a medical examiner and eventually with the FBI. A forensic anthropologist used carbon dating to determine it was likely the skull of a young man who lived in that area between 5500 and 6000 BC. After the sheriff posted about the discovery on May 18, his office was criticised by Native Americans, who said publishing photos of ancestral remains was offensive to their culture. Hable said the remains will be turned over to Upper Sioux Community tribal officials.
