Amazing Forensic Science DNA Sequencing

Ancient people in the British Isles set up mounds as burial sites, and they are known as barrows, cairns, and other names. Sometimes they are at the centers of stone circles, and are not uncommon. They vary in size. Cam Long Down is impressive, and has a barrow.

The Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles mentions them, which is unsurprising because some have legends of hauntings. One barrow was the subject of of space aliens in a Doctor Who story. Although stories are intriguing at times, reality can be much more interesting.

An ancient burial cairn such as at Cam Long Down in England had been opened, and researchers sequenced the DNA of the individuals inside.
Some extremely old bones were studied. It was mighty complicated, since they were jumbled in some parts of the burial chamber. When watching crime scene investigation shows where not much remains of a body, examiners can tell whether the deceased was male or female as well as the age. How can they tell the sex? Because males and females are built differently, and personal preferences doesn't change biological and biblical facts. You savvy that, Hoss?

The forensic science was impressive with sequencing DNA and determining family relationships. Unfortunately, due to their commitment to believing unreliable carbon-dating results, they accepted great antiquity for the bones. (This sort of thing has caused problems in archaeology before.) Also, explanations were given about why certain bones were there that were not from the family, and even animals. We see a lot of speculations without facts in the secular science industry.

A group of scientists—including archaeologists from Newcastle University, UK, and geneticists from the University of the Basque Country, University of Vienna, and Harvard University—unearthed a millennia-old family genealogy. They isolated and sequenced DNAs from postcranial, petrous, and teeth bones of 35 individuals buried in the stone cairn at Hazleton North (Gloucestershire, UK). This opens a new door to the hidden past 

Twenty-seven (21 males and 6 females) of the 35 were family members connected by blood, most of them genetic males descended from a single male and his four wives. This was a family of five generations, complete with an infant, toddlers, teenagers, and adults! The other eight were assumed to be non-family members because no genetic connection could be identified between them and the 27. Among these eight were a boy (aged 3-6 months), three women, and four men.
