        Skeletons of the Sahara: Part 6

        In this clip from Skeletons of the Sahara, National Geographic Explorer Paul Sereno's team finds one burial that provides insight into the kind of people who made up the ancient civilizations. The burial behavior reveals a uniquely caring and emotional culture. Examination of the skeletons' teeth allows a bio-archeologist to make an accurate estimate of age-of-death, providing additional information on how people died.
