I just had an interesting (sad) thought. Correct me if I am wrong (its been a while since i took genetics), but is not mitochondrial dna passed down from mother to daughter to granddaughter only (every man's mDNA comes from their mother and "dies" with them so to speak). So, if the people in this study/village (the woman at least), never have daughters or their daughters die before reproducing, their 5000 year old mDNA line would go extinct ? If so, that is one heck of a long, unbroken mDNA lineage to be lost :o.

Sorry for the ramblings. Interesting article.

They lived on a coastal inlet on the edge of a mountain rainforest. There were so few places to live, 5,000 years ago, as there are now.

Nonetheless, you're right. It's a great story. :) Could you imagine someone saying that these bones were your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, etc.(about 250 times) grandmother's?

I'd have to step back from that for a while to take that in.
