In 1881, archaeologists discovered the skull of a man buried in a cave in the village of Mladech on the territory
Experts have corrected the mistake that scientists made140 years ago. It turned out that the so-called Mladech 1 skull belonged to a 17-year-old woman who lived during the Aurignacian period. It belongs to the Upper Paleolithic (approximately 43,000 to 26,000 years old). The scientists published their findings as part of a new online book, Forensic Approach to the Mladech 1 Skull. In it, the experts detailed how scientists reclassified the sex of "one of the oldest Homo sapiens found in Europe."

For re-identification, scientists usedinformation gathered from 19th-century archaeological excavations, forensic facial reconstructions performed by researchers in the 1930s, and CT scans to create a digitized image of the skull. Since the lower jaw was missing, the experts turned to existing data on the jaws of modern humans. So they filled in the gaps in what this person could look like.
