Ancient burial of fierce female hunter (and her weapons) discovered in Peru | Live Science

The team identified 429 skeletons from 107 ancient burial sites across the Americas; 27 of those individuals —11 female (including the newly discovered female) and 15 male — were buried with big-game hunting tools. Further statistical analysis suggested that between 30% and 50% of hunters in these populations were female. “What we see is that female and male burials are just as likely to be associated with big-game hunting tools,” Haas said.  Source: Ancient burial of fierce female hunter (and her weapons) discovered in Peru | Live Science
