Remains of hybrid human girl with Neanderthal mother discovered in Siberian cave
Tehran (KNA) - 'Clearly they weren’t racist,' says scientist of evidence indicating ancient interbreeding between human species.
A bone belonging to a very unusual teenage girl has once again shaken up our understanding of human history. Around 50,000 years ago, Eurasia was home to two very distinct groups of humans, separated by thousands of years of evolution – the Neanderthals and the Denisovans.
Now analysis of a bone fragment from a Siberian cave has revealed the girl it came from had a Neanderthal mother and a Denisovan father.
