New Findings About Lake Roopkund (“Skeleton Lake”)


The Roopkund Lake in the Indian Himalayas, also known as "Skeleton Lake", was previously regarded as the scene of a single catastrophe with hundreds of deaths. Now, however, the first complete analysis of old genomes draws a completely different and puzzling scenario - the people who died here came from different genetic and cultural groups and died here at intervals of about 1000 years. Some of the dead even came from the Mediterranean region.
