PELICAN RAPIDS, Minn. — The remains of a prehistoric young woman were unearthed in 1931 during construction of a new road. Now U.S. Highway 59, the excavation site, is about a mile north of artist Marcella Rose's studio in Pelican Rapids. The primeval woman is believed to have lived about 20,000 years ago and may represent the oldest archaeological discovery in North America. Inspired by the magnitude of the discovery, Rose has dedicated her artwork to her interpretation of the young woman.
