The Remains of a Teenage Girl Disprove Everything We Thought We Knew About Human Evolution

The Remains of a Teenage Girl Disprove Everything We Thought We Knew About Human Evolution

A researcher in a laboratory in Germany is taken aback by what she has uncovered. She had to perform a double-take and go over her notes again to be sure she hadn't made any errors in reaching to the conclusion. The findings, however, were legitimate based on the facts.

The ancient relics she was investigating revealed that this girl was a hybrid of two species. The significance of this surprising discovery implies that what we know about human evolution from history and science is poised to alter.

Taking a risk

It all began when a study team discovered a little bone piece in a Siberian cave. They didn't even recognize it was a hominid at the time. Hominin is a term that refers to all organisms that were once thought to be human.

That particular bone was put away for years without any attention. Then, researcher Viviane Slon got her hands on the aforementioned bone and attempted to extract DNA from it. What she discovered later in a German laboratory could revolutionize our understanding of ancient humanity.

The making of history

As previously said, the owner's bone revealed that he was a hybrid – an offspring of two separate species. This is the first time an ancient human hybrid has been discovered in its pure form. This was the start of something big!

Modern people, as we all know, are descended from the same species, Homo sapiens. About 300,000 years ago, this species roamed the planet. However, if you consider prehistoric times, you will discover that there were a few human-like species that roamed the world.

Humans from the beginning

The species Homo heidelbergensis was more intellectual. They were able to create hunting equipment. They were also able to come up with a variety of hunting techniques that required them to collaborate in order to take down larger animals.
