University of Tübingen proves kinship between Native Americans and inhabitants of Siberia

The relationship between the inhabitants of Siberia and Native Americans was proved by geneticists from the University of Tübingen.

The DNA of three people who died about 500 years ago on the banks of a river in Kamchatka shows that these people were of North American origin. The Bering Sea region was a place of intercontinental connectivity where people regularly boated back and forth, Science columnist Michael Price wrote.

The idea of ​​reverse migration makes the history of this area more complex, but also more realistic, said Anders Göterström, a geneticist at Stockholm University, who was not involved in the study.
