Another new human species might have co-existed with modern humans

Denisova Cave, where the bones were found


Paleontology:
And a new find in Siberia. Supposedly another human species co-existed with modern humans just a few tens of thousands of years ago.

""Scientists have identified a previously unknown type of ancient human through analysis of DNA from a finger bone unearthed in a Siberian cave.
The extinct "hominin" (human-like creature) lived in Central Asia between 48,000 and 30,000 years ago.
An international team has sequenced genetic material from the fossil showing that it is distinct from that of Neanderthals and modern humans.
Details of the find, dubbed "X-woman", have been published in Nature journal.
Ornaments were found in the same ground layer as the finger bone, including a bracelet.""
