Windover Bog people
The remains of the Windover Bog people were discovered in January 1982 during the construction of a new road near Titusville, Florida. The discovery yielded the skeletons of 168 men, women, and children dating back over 7,000 years ago. DNA testing indicated these people were of European descent indicating some of the first peoples of the Americas were White.
Dr. Joseph Lorenz from Coriell Institute for Medical Research looked for DNA markers failing to find them with any American Indian people; instead he discovered a European connection.
- I went back to the screen and I looked at the sequences again, the first person’s DNA it looked European. When I looked at the second one it looked European. When I looked at the third, fourth and fifth it was slightly different from the first two but they looked European.
