From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Magdalenian Girl is a skeleton of an early modern human dating from 13,000 to 15,000 years ago. The remains were discovered in 1911 in southwestern France in the Cap Blanc rock shelter. Housed in the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois since 1926, it is the most complete Upper Paleolithic skeleton in North America. For years, the individual was thought to be a young girl, because her wisdom teeth had not yet advanced, but new analysis indicates that her wisdom teeth were impacted, and that she was actually 25 to 35 years old when she died.
