Bones Reveal Neanderthal Child was Eaten by a Giant Prehistoric Bird

Until recently, the oldest human fossil remains ever discovered in Poland were three molars found in Cave Stajnia, in the Krakow-Czestochowa Upland.
Those molars were estimated to be between 42-52,000 years old.

According to Science in Poland, that discovery has recently been blown away. A pair of finger bones belonging to a young Neanderthal child have been found in Cave Ciemna.

The bones appear to have been digested by a large bird and are estimated to be about 115,000 years old.

Identification was confirmed by Dr. Anita Szczepanek from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and Professor Erik Trinkaus from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Scientists noticed that the bones were poorly preserved, and very porous, dotted with tiny holes.

“Analyses show that this is the result of passing through the digestive system of a large bird. This is the first such known example from the Ice Age,” said Professor Pavel Valde-Nowak of the Institute of Archaeology from Jagiellonian University.
