Charred bones from the shore of Onega Lake tell about the first invasion of Finland
The author had subjected six calcined bones, found earlier by various groups of archaeologists during excavations on the northern and western shores of Lake Onega, to the radiocarbon dating. The analysis showed that the bones could be dated to the time of first settlements in Fennoscandia.
The discovery made by the scientist means that people inhabited the area surrounding the lake earlier than the time the most of the findings of traces of human presence in Finland and Scandinavia are dated to. Apparently, it was through Karelia that the first humans got there after the retreat of the glaciers.
