Skeleton of 8200-Year-Old Viste Boy may shed light on early migration To Norway

A small piece of the skull of the 8200-year-old “Viste Boy” has been sent to a Swedish laboratory for DNA analysis. Scientists hope to learn more about early migration into Norway as well as clarify the skeleton’s actual sex.

Even though the remains are referred to as the “Viste Boy”, it is not certain that this is a male skeleton. The DNA analysis on “Viste Boy” may help to determine whether the skeleton is that of a boy or a girl. “It’s very exciting to have two Stone Age skeletons from areas that are as close to each other as Viste and Sømmevågen, but where there is approximately a 2000-year age difference”, says osteoarchaeologist Sean D. Denham from the Museum of Archaeology, Recent research has shown that the portion of the temporal bone of the Viste Boy’s skull – sent for analysis – is the ideal bone material for recovering ancient DNA. The fragment was easy to remove from the skull. The DNA lab will return the majority of the fragment to the museum undamaged.

Also X-rays will help to document the different parts of the skeleton.

In anticipation of a possible sex clarification by the Swedish laboratory, scientists have now started calling the Viste Boy ‘the Viste Individual’ instead.DNA analysis may show if there was any direct kinship between the people who were found in the cave.
