11,500-Year-Old Remains of a Three Year Old found in Alaska

      Well if you believe in the legend of Madoc coming to  America in 1170 he must have met humans that were here first.
       Some 11,500 years ago early Americans buried a three year old child and it is giving scientist view of early settlers that came from Asia. These bones as you now may suspect are the earliest remains found in the Arctic of North America in what is called the forest of the Tanana lowlands.
        The remains were found in what appeared a seasonal house structure where before this they had only found hunting camps and temporary structures. Besides seeing that this was a different living situation it also shows early evidence of what was done with the dead as this was a cremation. They named this child in local Indian language: "Xaasaa Cheege Ts'enlin" (Upward Sun River Mouth Child) (Just an editors note here even harder to say than some Welsh names!) (Info from an article by Randolph E. Schmid: Associated Press)
