Salon 275: 16 April 2012

The following is from Salon 275

'So many stories have been published in the media in recent months concerning our ancestors that it is difficult to keep up. The latest position seems to be that it is all a lot more complex than current diagrams of the human family tree might suggest. The outcome has not changed — we are still the only human species left on the planet (at least, until the illusive bigfoot and yeti are tracked down), but that there were probably more hominids than we know about, some of which only became extinct in very recent times, and some of which may live on in modern genes thanks to inter-breeding.'
