She died circa 650 bce (about 2,600 years ago.) No mention of her MTDNA type. Carbon dating was used.

So far the comments are nasty - from T-Rex to a Jewish bias. I wonder why they gave her rosacea...?

It would be more fun if they posted haplogroups than a facial reconstruction. They did the dna testing, so why not?
Thanks for the link.

This is the first time that I have heard they could get DNA from bog bodies . Does anybody know the results ?.
Usually the lime in the bog water destroyes the DNA

If bones survived, there is a big chance finding teeth and extract DNA from the middle of a tooth.

Its amazing to know and listen.The study of mankind solves the generation and races matters.You know that we have come to know about the origin of humanity , civilization and different races.And do you know that we all are from one man.

No we are not from one man. We are a product of few millions years of intermingling of many hominid species. Recent genetic studies tell us, with 100% certainty, that our African ancestors had kids with euro-asiatic neanderthals. What is your bible saying about this? Oh, the ancient poets that wrote the bible didn't know about this??? It doesn't look good for god and holy spirit.
