flor molina's curator insight, January 17, 9:21 PM

A team of archealogists discovered unique cementery burials for child and infants from the Neolithic period. Archaeologist guess that these cementeries are 6,500 years old. They are unique because around that period, children were most likely to get buried next to their mother.

claudia patino's curator insight, January 23, 8:02 PM

Modern technology is helping archaeologist now by being able to tell us if bones from different skeletal bodies are family. Interesting that there was a cementary  only for children and babies and a completely different cementary for adults. Also after the thousands of years that the jewelry they wore is still existing while the bones of the humans have fadded away.
