Living in Yucatan in the Late Pleistocene Life history and origins of Naia  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The skeleton of Naia, a 15-16 years old female who inhabited the Yucatan Peninsula, is among the oldest and best-preserved in the Americas and has been the focus of extensive study. Her remains were recovered in 2014-2016 from the bottom of a sinkhole near Tulum (Quintana Roo, Mexico), where she had fallen to her death about 13,000 years age. This talk will highlight the newest analyses, which provide insights from her dentition into her diet, health and lifestyle, as well as inform current debates over the origins of Late Pleistocene Paleoindian groups from the New World.
