However, after the uranium isotope analysis has done, it showed that the skeleton is 4700 years old. Although its discoverer claimed the skeleton was male, the DNA analysis prove it was female.  There is a healed fracture on his ulna. De Terra hypothesized this truama was caused by hunting activities. However Science Newsletter claims that this individuals was more likely suffered from arthrits.
