Two 6,000-year old human skeletons with perfectly preserved teeth have been found on a Brazilian construction site.
The remains were found at a site on the BR-470 road in the Ilhota municipality in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina.
The skeletons’ skulls and leg bones appear to be well-preserved with the full set of teeth still clearly visible.
It is believed the site would have been an island in a lagoon when the ancient humans were alive.
Scientists say the skeletons may belong to people from one of the hundreds of Jiquabu tribes that inhabited Brazil as long as 10,000 years ago up until the colonial period.
