Argentine archaeologists discover remains of Tehuelche Indians
Argentine archaeologists have discovered remains belonging to 50 Tehuelche Indians in the central region of La Pampa, it was reported on Monday.

Carbon-dating tests, conducted by experts from the United States, indicate that the remains are at least 500 years old, according to press reports here.

Researchers believe that the site where the remains were found, some 400 km from La Pampa's capita Santa Rosa, could have been used for human sacrifices, as many of the bones have arrowheads embedded in them.
