A newly discovered fossil exhibits traits from both Neanderthals and Homo erectus.
A new study revealed that the ancestors of modern humans who went out of Africa interacted and interbred with other forms of early humans, such as Neanderthals and Denisovans. This interbreeding helped our ancestors to develop various traits for survival.
Based on the evidence gathered on five Neanderthal skeletal remains in Belgium, researchers were able to distinguish marks that show Neanderthals practice cannibalism.
