Indonesia invades America

I can't resist a great headline ;)

Actually the article over at PhysOrg is really interesting. It's the ever-recurring question of humanity's history and who settled America first. Scientists have "reconstructed" the remains of an ancient body found in Mexico, and the result is an elderly woman who looks Indonesian.

Of course nothing is simple and there's all sorts of caveats and arguments. But still the impression is of ancient humans moving around far more adventurously than we, their descendants, imagine.
