Flat- Faced Early Humans


Fossils found a few years ago in Lake Turkana, Kenya that date back to less than 2 million years ago show that at least one of our ancestors was flat- faced, meaning little prognathism and less of an ape- like face. The time that this species was alive proves that there were at least two forms of “non- erectus” species living at the same time in the same location.

Doubt of Interbreeding with Neanderthals


This is an interesting article that refutes the idea that our Homo sapiens interbred with Neanderthals. A few years ago, evidence was found that showed there was shared DNA between us and Neanderthals. Scientist at the University of Cambridge are saying that the shared DNA is not a result of interbreeding but is the DNA of our shared ancestor, Homo heidelbergensis.
