India’s Skeleton Lake contains bones originated from Crete

Συνολικά έχουν βρεθεί οστά που ανήκουν σε 38 ανθρώπους

The bones of several hundred mysterious people lie scattered around a small lake, earning it the nickname Skeleton Lake. Some of those people originated in the vicinity of Greece and Crete around 220 years ago.

One sample of skeletons, which were already known to have perished up to 1,200 years ago, revealed variations of dating even within that group.

Some were dated to about AD 675-769, while another individual was dated more than 200 years after that.

The eastern Mediterranean sample — appearing to closely relate to present-day Crete and Greece — dated much more recently to around AD 1800.
