Kayakers find 8,000-year-old human skull in Minnesota

When a pair of kayaks discovered a skull fragment near the Minnesota River in 2021, local authorities thought they might have new clues to a missing person case. But a forensic examination revealed something much more surprising: The bone was 8,000 years old.

Kayakers have discovered not the remains of a modern-day murder victim, but clues to Native American life during the Archaic period, which spanned some 8,000 to 1,000 years ago. Examination of the skull revealed that it belonged to a man who lived between 5,500 BC and 6,000 BC
