  • Coexistence Of Neanderthals

    The Neanderthals were a hominin species that inhabited Eurasia for around 300,000 years before disappearing soon after the arrival of anatomically modern humans, somewhere around 39,000 years ago. What the cause of this extinction might have been is a subject of heavy debate, the two main theories currently splitting between a climatic and a competitive focus. One of the most important components of being able to properly evaluate these propositions is to answer the question of whether modern…

  • Evolution Of Neanderthal

    Paleolithic, before abruptly being replaced by Homo sapiens in the archaeological record around 40,000 years ago. Since the first Neanderthal remains were excavated from a limestone quarry in Germany’s Neander Valley in the middle of the 19th century, the question of how these remarkable hominids met their demise has engaged the imagination of archaeologists and laypeople alike. This paper seeks to answer two questions. First, to what extend did humans and Neanderthals interbreed during their…

  • Physical Characteristics Of Neanderthal

    The Homo neanderthalensis or Neanderthal is an extinct species that is commonly referred as the “cave man”. It is said to be one of the closest related to modern humans with a small genetic difference in their DNA. The species was believed to have continued to live for hundreds of thousands of years in tremendously severe conditions. Physical Characteristics Even though the Neanderthal and Human are said to be closely related, the Neanderthal differs from the human in many factors. One of…

This study created a draft sequence of approximately 60% of the Neanderthal genome based on nucleotides from three individual Neanderthal samples (Vindija Neanderthal fossils Vi33.16, Vi33.25 and Vi33.26). The study differs from previous attempts to examine Neanderthal DNA as it examines mitochondrial DNA, Y chromosomal DNA and…

    and homo sapiens interbred. It can be explained based on the study of the genome of Neanderthal. Neanderthal is the extinct species of the genus Homo whose fossils were first discovered in Neander valley in Germany, hence named as Neanderthal. This species of the genus Homo is closely related to the modern humans. It was seen from the analysis of mtDNA of both the species that both the species of the genus Homo shared the common ancestors and that was Homo heidelbergensis (The origins, evolution…
