While scientists writing in a Chinese journal herald the arrival of a new human species called Homo longi, others are not so sure. Still, the discovery is a major and exciting one
Scientists discover a skull in northeast China which represents a new human species named “Dragon Man,” which they say should replace Neanderthals as our closest relatives
Archaeologists have discovered the grave of a child, “Mtoto”, who had been laid to rest 78,000 years ago.
Researchers detect a genetic contribution from East Asia rather than Europe as they discover 3 to 3.8 percent Neanderthal DNA from the remains of three people, who lived roughly 45,000 years ago.
Researchers say DNA from the five fossils from Bulgaria's Bacho Kiro cave demonstrated they belonged to anatomically modern Homo sapiens. The research pushes back by thousands of years the arrival of Homo sapiens in Europe
Scientists construct a virtual three-dimensional model of a Neanderthal brain based on head size and shape of fossilised skulls to observe its differences with the brain of modern-day homo sapiens.
