Fragments of the skull and jaws of a new species of ancient man, found in Israel

Remains of a previously unknown species of ancient people have been found in Israel.

Fragments of human skulls and jaws aged from 120 to 140 thousand years were found by scientists during excavations in the Nesher Ramla limestone quarry in the center of Israel.

Having studied them in detail, paleoanthropologists discovered a combination of features characteristic of both Neanderthals and Homo erectus – the first representative of the genus Homo, which left Africa about 2 million years ago.

Looking at these bones, we immediately realized that this is a different kind of man – not Homo sapiens. The skull fragment indicates a very low and flat skull, not like ours – round and high, and there is no chin in the lower jaw. And the chin, as we know, is only with us, Homo sapiens. So we knew right away that we were dealing with someone else.

    Despite the outward similarities, modern humans (Homo sapiens) and Neanderthals evolved in different ways. Previously, it was believed that the ancestors of both species separated about 650 thousand years ago.

    Homo sapiens stayed in Africa and gradually colonized it, while Homo neanderthalensis migrated north and settled in Europe and Asia.

    Scientists say the remains found in Israel will shed new light on human evolution.
