Almost 30 human skeletons from 2000 BC. have been found in the La Sepultura cave, in Tamaulipas. These remains could be related to the first settlers of America, according to a genetic study carried out by experts from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Archaeologists can show that this area contains evidence of one of the oldest bloodlines in America, since they have been based on osteometric studies, old DNA and radiocarbon tests applied to the bone remains found in Tula, east of Sierra Madre.

Specifically, these remains are associated with the men who they crossed the Bering Strait more than 10 million years ago.

Jesús Ernesto Velasco reports that the previous DNA analysis carried out in the paleo-DNA laboratory of Lakehead University (in Canada), which were performed on a mummified specimen from the Enchanted cave found in 2008, has allowed the identification of a genetic profile of these settlements. The expert assures that the analyzes will certify the origin of the prehistoric groups of the Mexican northwest and their dispersion over time.

In order to explore the broad region of the Eastern Sierra Madre and Tamaulipas, a group of IIA specialists from UNAM, the University of Córdoba, Spain, and the INAH Center of Tamaulipas was formed. In October 2011 they found the skeletal remains of more than 25 individuals. The same year they began to examine the cavities located in the municipality of Tula.

Among these is the cave of Dead in the Sierra Naola, where there were bone remains along with ceramics and lithics. These bones date from 850 and 795 BC, but the pottery was from 200 or 600 AD, so archaeologist Vanueth Pérez believes that the cave was used by other settlers at a time after the period analyzed.

Finally, to this day other cavities have been located in the Tamaulipas mountains such as the Tepozan caves that include pictorial art. Likewise, in Guano and El Fraile pictorial manifestations have been found in rocky terrain and funerary remains, among others.

I am currently studying Journalism and Audiovisual Communication at the Rey Juan Carlos University, which has made me inclined towards the international section, including the study of languages. For this reason, I do not rule out dedicating myself to teaching. I also like to practice physical exercise and spend a pleasant time chatting with my acquaintances and with new people. Lastly, I enjoy traveling to know the authentic culture of each region of the world, although I admit that before I need to find out as much as possible about the place I'm going to visit, to fully enjoy the experience.
