Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Genetic analysis has revealed that the ancestors of modern humans interbred with at least five different archaic human
groups as they moved out of Africa and across Eurasia.
A 160,000-year-old archaic human
molar fossil unearthed in China provides the first morphological evidence of interbreeding between archaic humans
and Homon sapiens in Asia.
"It has some affinities to archaic human
relatives like the Denisovans and Neanderthals with, as we found, some more-modern features.
A new paper reveals that modern humans co-existed and interbred with archaic human
Denisovans, not only with Neanderthals--another type of extinct human species--at least twice between 200,000 and 50,000 years ago.
It is not biologically unreasonable to propose some interbreeding between modern and archaic human
populations--even if they are not the same species.
The "Gestalt" section of Las cacerias consists of three poems, titled respectively "Hormiga," "Tigre," and "Escrituras de rana." In these poems Biagioni pushes beyond archaic human
history to imaginatively reconstruct the consciousness of the animal that lives, as the ant claims, "en la sombra del hombre" (14).
In addition to carefully arranged burials of Archaic human
adults and children, he mentioned that about one third of the burials included such materials as red ocher, weapons, tools and the bodies of dogs.
Although some see our `races' as very ancient divisions, the dominant view today is that the ancestors of all modern humans expanded recently from Africa to replace all archaic human
types throughout the world (see Human ancestry, right).
burials are seldom recovered on the Southern High Plains of Texas (Jurgens 1979; Owsley et al.
Scientists have unearthed a group of ancient bones and stone tools in the Philippines, a discovery that significantly changes our understanding of archaic human
migration and suggests our ancestors lived in the region long before any of us thought.
Because Neanderthals lived in a land of abundant limestone caves, which preserve bones well, and where there has been a long history of prehistoric research, they are better known than any other archaic human
group, according to the Britannica Encyclopedia.
