|Giant Underwater Cave Was Hiding Oldest Human Skeleton in the Americas
|The image of scientists 140 feet underwater, delicately holding the skull of a teenage girl from the last ice age, is one you’re unlikely to forget. In this video, we join explorer Alberto Nava on a journey into a submerged cave, where this discovery lay in wait for 13,000 years. When I interviewed Nava for this video, what struck me most was his admiration for this long-deceased teenager and her people and his commitment to preserving and respecting their legacy. This video is one small part of that effort.
