This just goes to show how complex our evolutionary history really is.
Talk about a stunning find!
You are what you eat…
If the footprint is confirmed to be Neanderthal, it would only be the second one in the world, the other being Vartop Cave in Romania.
The Denisovans were our cousins. We’re only now starting to understand them.
Neanderthal genes may be making some people’s skulls more elongated — they may also explain some modern human brain evolution.
Yet another similarity that Neanderthals share with humans.
However, their mothers still too care of them as best of they could.
Talk about a gruesome story — yikes!
Ancient interbreeding primed modern humans for an encounter with new viruses.
Climate change was unforgiving with the Neanderthals.
How I met your Neanderthal mother.
Neanderthals were every bit as complex and advanced as early humans — and perhaps even more so.
All the better to breathe with.
Our ancestors interbred both with Neanderthals and Denisovans.
They took care of their community members without expecting anything in return.
Neanderthals were thinkers and artists, just like humans, tantalizing new research suggests.
The research suggests that human interbreeding was more of a ‘step-by-step’ event.
Humans weren’t necessarily better than the Neanderthals, they just moved around more.
