The separation of Neanderthal and Homo sapiens might have occurred at least one million years ago, more than 500,000 years earlier than previously believed after DNA-based analyses.
Archaeologists reported on Tuesday that they have found the earliest evidence of Neanderthals living in Britain.
According to a genetic study, researchers have found that Neanderthals and modern humans interbred, most likely at the time when early humans first began to migrate from Africa.
Genetic testing on a humanoid pinky finger bone discovered in a Siberian cave in 2008 has revealed the possible existence of a new, previously undiscovered pre-human life form.

Polish scientists announced Monday that they have found three Neanderthal teeth in a cave in Poland and are eager to find a link to modern man.
The paper, by Professor JoÃ£o ZilhÃ£o and colleagues, builds on his earlier research which proposed that, south of the Cantabro-Pyrenean mountain chain, Neanderthals survived for several millennia after being replaced or assimilated by anatomically modern humans everywhere else in Europe.
A group of scientists may have solved the mystery of how human hands became nimble enough to make and manipulate stone tools.

The Wild Man of the Navidad has been claimed to be the first Bigfoot in Texas. It was widely reported in 1837 along the Navidad River, in Sublime, Texas. The slaves of that era called it “The Thing That Comes,” because it was never seen, but evidence pointed to something being there. During the night inside the cabins, food would go missing; their fattened hogs would be replaced with thin ones. However, no valuables were never touched. Tools would sometimes go missing but would return...
The Neanderthals or Neandertals are an extinct species or subspecies of the genus Homo which is closely related to modern humans. They are known from fossils, dating back from the Pleistocene period, which have been found in Europe and parts of western and central Asia. The species gets its name from Neandertal, “Neander’s Valley”, the location in Germany where it was first uncovered. Neanderthals are classified either as a subspecies of Homo sapiens or as a distinct species of the...
