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
Nine Neanderthals’ remains were found in the Guattari cave near Rome in Italy. It has been discovered that they were preyed upon by hyenas who mauled then dragged them to the cave.

Researchers say they traced the DNA of a jawbone found in a cave on the Tibetan Plateau to the Denisovans, a defunct cousin of modern humans.
