A new study finds that the mysterious 6,500-year-old tomb of a woman and several arrowheads in northern France may reveal details about how women were perceived as society during the Stone Age New, or Neolithic.

The researchers studied giant tombs known as “barbarians” – large mounds of earth, often hundreds of feet long and sometimes held together by rotting wooden planks. Of the 19 human burials at the Neolithic cemetery at Fleury-sur-Orne in Normandy, the team analyzed DNA of 14 individuals; but only one is female.
