Neanderthals had a brain at birth of a similar size to that of modern-day babies. However, after birth, their brain grew more quickly than it does for Homo sapiens and became larger too. Nevertheless, the individual lifespan ran just as slowly as it does for modern human beings.

DNA from a cave in Russia adds a mysterious new member to the human family.

All three fossils (two molars and part of a finger bone) were found in Denisova cave in southern Siberia, where Russian student Zoya Gudkova takes a break from digging. Neanderthals and modern humans also lived there tens of thousands of years ago.

Recently discovered skeletal remains in Italy, which date 30,000 to 40,000 years old, are possibly those of a hybrid between a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis or Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) and human (Homo sapiens)! The individual's lower jaw is currently being examined, and it seems to indicate a hominin which had a face that looked intermediate between a Neanderthal and modern human. Genetic analysis -> female Neanderthal and a male Homo sapiens.

ALTERNATE ROUTES: Long-distance Networking - Marty Lang explains effective networking by using social media, online research and writers conferences.

The first genomes sequences of Neanderthals and Denisovans revealed that these groups interbred with anatomically modern humans more than 30,000 years ago. But now more complete versions of the Denisovan and Neanderthal genomes reveal another notch in the belt of our ancient ancestors. The Denisovan interbred with an unknown 'archaic ancestor' in Asia.

Discovery of Strange Ancient Human Bedfellow Sheds Light on Genetic Diversity

Early humans lived in a world that one evolutionary geneticist compared to the fantasy world of Lord of the Rings. Not only were there many hominid populations, but these populations interbred, contributing to the genetic diversity of modern humans.

Black death skeletons reveal pitiful life of 14th-century Londoners

Evidence from skulls in east London shows plague had to have been airborne to spread so quickly Archaeologists and forensic scientists who have examined 25 skeletons unearthed in the Clerkenwell area of London a year ago believe they have.

The Neanderthals' genetic legacy

Many of the Neanderthal genes that live on in people today are involved in making keratin, a protein used in skin, hair and nails [Credit: J.

Magdalenian culture. Reconstruction of a woman from the prehistoric Magdalenian culture. The Magdalenian people, a culture of early modern humans, lived in western Europe from 15,000 to 7000 years ago, during the Upper Paleolithic period. As well as evidence of fur clothing, excavations have found a wide range of carved bone, antler and ivory artefacts. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.

Neanderthal and modern human skeletons. This picture looks very similar to the gorilla and human skeleton from before. The neanderthal has that same wide rib cage as the gorilla, just narrower. And ours is even more narrow. This is a great example of descent with modification

Neanderthal and modern human skeletons. Remember kids, Homo Sapiens did not evolve from Neanderthals. They were two distinctly different species. Neanderthals are now believed to have partially co-existed with Cro-Magnons and may even have interbred.

400000-year-old fossil human cranium is oldest ever found in Portugal #Geology #GeologyPage

Researchers have found the oldest fossil human cranium in Portugal, marking an important contribution to knowledge of human evolution during the middle Pleistocene in Europe and to the origin of the Neanderthals.

Neanderthal, also spelled Neandertal,   the most recent archaic humans, who emerged between 300,000 and 100,000 years ago and were replaced by early modern humans between 35,000 and perhaps 24,000 years ago. Neanderthals inhabited Eurasia from the Atlantic regions of Europe eastward to Central Asia and from as far north as present-day Belgium southward to the Mediterranean and southwest Asia.
