Humans interbred with Neanderthals and Denisovans, but were there others? Paleontologists are using deep learning to find lost branches of our family tree.
Humans dispersal into northern Africa is thought to be happened later than 2.6 million years ago. However, we discovered two archaeological deposits estimated to 2.4 and 1.9 million years ago at the site of Ain Boucherit, Algeria. The evidence argues either for a rapid dispersal of stone tool manufacture from East Africa or for possible multiple origins of stone tool manufacture. – submission by Mohamed Sahnouni

Researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, analysed the brains of early humans that lived alongside a similar hominid species which had a ‘pint sized’ brain.
These cave paintings in Spain were made nearly 65,000 years ago, new research suggests. If true, this calls into question our understanding of Neanderthals. Neanderthals were thought to be a primitive cousin of modern humans. The paintings are in ancient caves at La Pasiega, about 50 miles west of Bilbao. Archeologists from Germany’s Max Planck […]
Whether Neanderthals had the same cognitive abilities as fully modern humans has long been a matter of debate, with many suggesting our species displayed more mental prowess. One area where Neanderthals were considered lacking was in the production of cave art. But new findings from cave sites in Spain suggest that
