1931 · The Prehistoric Minnesota Woman

Age 0

The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.

1933 · The Browns Valley Man

Age 2

Just like the Minnesota Woman, The Browns Valley Man are deemed the oldest human remains found in Minnesota. They were found by W. H. Jenson, while he was laying gravel for his driveway, in the Traverse gap in western Minnesota. The remains are believed to be around 9,000 years old.
