Neanderthals were separate species, new study finds
A new, simplified family tree of humanity has dealt a blow to those who contend that the enigmatic hominids known as Neanderthals intermingled with our forebears.
Neanderthals were a separate species to Homo sapiens, as anatomically modern humans are known, rather than offshoots of the same species, the new organigram published Sunday by the journal Nature declares.

Argentina, marks a break with the conventional
technique by which anthropologists chart the twists
and turns of the human odyssey.
