Latest Neanderthal Stories
A multinational team of scientists led by the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology has sequenced nuclear and mitochondrial DNA extracted from the leg of an early modern human found in the Tianyuan Cave near Beijing, China.
Surrogacy, the act of a woman carrying a child for another person or couple, is a fairly standard and accepted practice in this day and age – unless, of course, you’re being recruited to give birth to the first Neanderthal baby in more than 30,000 years. Then it gets a little unorthodox.
A scientist in Texas claims to have sequenced the genome of Bigfoot, alias Sasquatch or Yeti. The science community, however, remains exceedingly skeptical.
A team of anthropologists, led by the University of Toronto, has found evidence that human ancestors used stone tipped weapons for hunting 500,000 years ago, 200,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Neanderthal men likely adorned themselves with bird feathers, a new study suggests. The researchers believe the feathers were stripped from the remains of birds and worn as decorative ornaments or jewelry.
A tiny bit of a finger bone, found in a Siberian cave, is shedding light on a rather enigmatic group of early humans called the Denisovans.
New analytical techniques are changing long-held, simplistic views about the evolutionary history of humans in Europe.
A new study from the University of Cambridge finds that the DNA similarities between Neanderthals and modern humans are more likely to have arisen from a shared common ancestor than from interbreeding.
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...
