"A study conducted into the genomes of a Mesolithic hunter -gatherer further confirms that modern Iberians are not genetically related to these pre-farming people."
Beyond my general interest in hominins, I love that the more we learn about Neanderthals the more clear it becomes that they are essentially us. I love that for all these millenia, my ancestors have very likely been unknowingly carrying some of their genes into the future. I love that some piece of them is hiding in so many of us. It’s beautiful.
