“Using DNA extracted from Inca mummies together with older remains found in Peru, western Bolivia, northern Chile, Mexico and the Argentinian Pampas, the researchers were able to build up a picture of how the early American’s spread through the continent.
They then compared them to the genomes from modern Native American populations, but were unable to find any of these ancient DNA sequences in the modern lineages. This suggests the indigenous populations in South and Central America suffered a devastating collapse that led to almost none of their genetic material surviving today.
The study also allowed the researchers to reconstruct where the first American populations may have originated from. Some recent research has found evidence of Asian and Australian DNA in Amazonian tribes and suggested they may have been among the original colonists of the continent.
But the new study traced the DNA found in the mummies and skeletons to a group of people who became isolated in eastern Beringia up to 25,000 years ago."
"Dr Bastien Llamas, a senior research associate with the University of Adelaide’s Australian Centre for Ancient DNA who led the study, said: ‘Surprisingly, none of the genetic lineages we found in almost 100 ancient humans were present, or showed evidence of descendants, in today’s Indigenous populations.
'The only scenario that fit our observations was that shortly after the initial colonisation, populations were established that subsequently stayed geographically isolated from one another, and that a major portion of these populations later became extinct following European contact.”

The list goes on and on, and if those accomplishments and success make Little Mix “flops”, then artists like Adele, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande etc must be the biggest “flops” of all. It doesn’t matter that majority of LM success is based in their home country, (and it’s still incredibly difficult to be successful even in your own country), so it’s still pretty impressive what LM have achieved. Get your head out of your ass and stop downgrading or diminish all the records that these girls have smashed, just because those records aren’t in the US. Success is still success no matter by who or which country it’s achieved in.
Little mix is known all throughout Europe…to the point where the Europe fans are begging for a world tour.
Australia loves little mix. And they are huge there
