Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have gained more in the Stone Age, a woman’s DNA from the 5,700-year-old chewing gum.”
The “gum” is made from birch pitch, according to the researchers, it was once chewed out by a Stone Age woman. Birch pitch is a substance made by heating birch bark. Researchers have successfully extracted a complete human genome, that of the birch, and pitch, which are found in the South of France.
“It’s great to have a complete ancient human genome from anything other than a” bot,” project leader, Hannes Schroeder, an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen and the World Institute, said in a statement. “What’s more, we also extracted DNA from the oral micro-organisms, and a number of important human pathogens, thus allowing it to be a very valuable source of ancient DNA, in particular for the periods of time where we were not human remains.”

The DNA analysis showed that birch pitch was chewed out by a woman, who was described as being genetically closer to the hunter-gatherers of the continent of Europe, than the inhabitants of the scandinavian peninsula at the time. The researchers believe that it is the woman most likely had dark skin, dark hair and blue eyes.
So, armed with this information, it is an artist’s impression of the woman called “Lola” has been created.

Scientists have found DNA that may be related to the Epstein-Barr virus, which underlines the way in which items, such as the Age of the Stone, and “chewing gum” was able to provide an insight into the evolution of human pathogens.
“It will help us to understand how these pathogens have evolved and spread over the period of time, and they are very keen for it to be in a certain environment,” Schroeder said. At the same time, it may be helpful to have the ability to predict how a pathogen will behave in the future, and how it can be contained or eradicated.”

Scientific and technological developments and providing a fascinating glimpse into the past. In 2017, for example, the experts in Scotland have used 3-d technology to reconstruct the face of an 18th century “witch.”
