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)

Just a few thoughts his morning folks!

        Not to much news that interests me in the last few days. I do want to express my thoughts for those in the earthquake area of Christchurch N.Z. We are all worldwide thinking of you!
        When you live in a small town they call a city (Durham, N.C. USA) the paper is so small there is not much to say! Monday is the worst and ours blew down the driveway and into the drain ditch! I did have to laugh at one editorial the other day though about someone complaining about how a southern Officer from the Civil War was pictured in the paper. Strange as he was pointing out how cruel the man was. Dangerous words as these people are still fighting the war or think the south won!
          Well in the Welsh news for today Wales to play Italy in Rugby-Six Nation on Sat. Hope that Wales can get as much interest in the March third vote on more powers for the Assembly! It was well put by:
Carwyn Jones tells press conference 'There is no status quo after Thursday. Either we take a step backwards or we go forwards' In my poll that few of my Welsh friends have bothered to take the YES vote is 80% and I hope that this will be the vote soon for Wales. I hope not as violent as the clashes in the middle east, but I would like to see Cymru/Wales stand up on it own two feet and speak as one clear voice for independence. That is the theme of this blog and the dream of Owain Glyndwr that still lives in the heart of Welshmen and women today! See good thought on the vote here -
Women from across Wales yesterday took part in an event designed to encourage female voters to back Yes in next week’s referendum on the National Assembly’s powers.
