The Denisovans: Ancient Humans



The Denisovans are an extinct group of archaic humans that lived across Asia during the Lower and Middle Paleolithic periods. They are known primarily through DNA evidence, as physical remains are scarce. The first Denisovan individual was identified in 2010 from a finger bone found in Denisova Cave in Siberia. They are closely related to Neanderthals and interbred with both Neanderthals and modern humans. Genetic studies suggest that Denisovans had dark skin, eyes, and hair, and contributed to the genetic makeup of present-day Melanesians, Aboriginal Australians, and Filipino Negritos. The exact taxonomy of Denisovans is still debated, with some researchers suggesting they may be a separate species within the Homo genus.
