! ! ! ! ! Archaeologists find 3 prehistoric bodies in SE Mexico
Mexican archaeologists found remains of two women and a man that can be traced to more than 10,000 years ago in the Mayan area of Tulum, Mexico's National Anthropology and History Institute said in a statement on Tuesday.

The remains were being examined by laboratories in Britain, the United States and Mexico, all of which had said the remains were people between 10,000 and 14,500 years ago, said Carmen Rojas, an archaeologist quoted in the statement.

"This makes southeastern Mexico one of the few areas with a proven prehistoric presence in America," said Rojas.

Errrrrr. . . .badly written article. Not sure about the dating of these things, whatever they turn out to be. Certainly a 14,000-year old body would be big news.
