Skylar Chase looks at remains and artifacts from the Upward Sun River site in a lab on the UAF campus in Fairbanks Alaska
Skylar Chase stands with her grandmother, Healy Lake Traditional Council First Chief Joann Polston, as she looks at remains and artifacts from the Upward Sun River site during a private meeting between UAF archaeologists Ben Potter and Joel Irish and residents of Healy Lake, a nearby Native community in a lab on the UAF campus in Fairbanks, Alaska in this recent photograph released to Reuters on February 25, 2011. UAF researchers and tribal groups, including the Healy Lake Traditional Council, have collaborated on work at the site. The 11,500-year-old cremated remains of child discovered in Alaska are the oldest human remains found in the far north of North America and the second-youngest Ice Age child ever found on the continent, scientists say.
