In a new paper, scientists explore how modern humans came to rule the world. Homo sapiens' ability to adapt and thrive in different extreme settings played a huge part on how we became the last surviving humans on Earth.
We caught modern genital warts because our ancestors were having sex with the HPV infected Neanderthals.
A group of researchers from the University of Kansas has found the oldest evidence of the right handed person -- not a Homo sapiens but a Homo habilis.
It’s the path that ancient humans walked, the marks they have made on the ancient earth. Scientists discovered over 400 human footprints – each one remarkably well-preserved – in Engare Sero, Tanzania back in 2010 and these footprints led to valuable knowledge of their lives millennia ago.
Researchers recently discovered a new human ancestor named Homo naledi. It took six tiny women to excavate the fossils from the narrow cave, and we had the chance to talk to one of them.
Early human teeth found in a cave in southern China suggest that humans migrated to Asia much earlier than previously thought, and long before they made their way to Europe. This changes our knowledge of early human distribution.
Stone tools recently discovered in the desert badlands of northwestern Kenya are the oldest yet discovered, dating back 3.3 million years, and now they are challenging our long-held notion of early human history.
