Why it's important to learn how children lived in the last ice ageThe children who lived more than 10,000 years ago have been historically understudied, even though they're pivotal for our collective understanding of the species, and how we play and learn, according to researcher April Nowell.

Some beads found at a children's burial site in La Madeleine, France may have been embroidered onto the outfits fashioned specifically for the burial, or they may have been made for them to wear in life before an untimely demise.

Making those beads likely took "hours and hours of work," Nowell said.

"What really speaks to how much these children were loved is that these beads were buried with that child. They weren't passed onto another child."
