Climate change has been plaguing humans since the beginning of time. A new study revealed that ancient hominins, Neanderthals, may have died out due to cold, dry climate shifts.
Scientists find the first ever direct evidence of interbreeding among early humans. The first-generation hybrid named Denny has a Neanderthal mother and a Denisovan father, two entirely different human species that co-existed for hundreds of thousands of years.
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.
Scientists find human DNA in sedimentary samples from caves without bone remains.
History may be rewritten as scientists date humans in California over 100,000 years earlier than previously believed.
A newly discovered fossil exhibits traits from both Neanderthals and Homo erectus.
Digging deep into Neanderthals' ancient teeth, scientists uncovered several interesting details about their lives dozens of millenia ago.
The fossils, which was labeled "archaic Homo," share combined features of Neanderthals, earlier eastern Eurasian humans and modern humans.

Based on the evidence gathered on five Neanderthal skeletal remains in Belgium, researchers were able to distinguish marks that show Neanderthals practice cannibalism.
A recent study reveals that inbreeding among Neanderthals have resulted to a harmful gene mutation, which was then passed on to modern humans, making them 40 percent less likely to reproduce.
