ChinaIs a large skull fossil discovered in . Denisovan is it? Scientists have been discussing this issue for a long time. According to a group of researchers, this skull belongs to one of the missing human relatives. Denisovanlara may belong. However, a group of researchers Homolongi It wants it to be classified as a new species called Homolongi Chinese derived from a term and dragon It means.
But the scientists said the discovery was certainly very important and exciting. But they think the decision to add a new species to our family tree is premature. Here are the details of the study!
Ancient human fossil is at least 146,000 years old
Researchers Harbin skull in the 1930s China’s Heilongjiang in the state Harbin discovered in the city. The man who first uncovered the skull had hidden it in a well. However, on his deathbed, he revealed his location. 2018They pulled it out of the well in and now analyzed it for the first time.
Harbin The skull is the largest Homo skull found by researchers. The researchers found that the skull 146,000 ila 296,000 about a year ago 50 He speculates that it belonged to a deceased man. The skull has a mix of ancient and modern human traits. For example, they have thick eyebrow protrusions. But his face is bigger than a modern human face. However, its brain size is similar to ours.
The shape of the skull indicates a decidedly different lineage in East Asia. Neanderthaller or Homosapiens not. One possibility Harbin a fossil Denisovan that is. This extinct group of humans was first found ten years ago in the Denisova cave in Siberia. From DNA taken from the finger bone, scientists identified him as Denisovan. Denisovanlar Neandertallerle They were closely related and lived in Asia for hundreds of thousands of years. They also mated with Homosapiens.
In recent years several Denisova They found the fossil. Xiahe on the Tibetan Plateau jawbone is one of them. Scientists have found that this bone is at least 160.000 He said he was old. but Denisovan‘s skulls are hard to find. The Harbin skull may be one of the strongest candidates ever found. So for the first time a Denisovan We can see his face more clearly.
science team skull Xiahe found that it was closely related to the jawbone. Both of these fossils have large teeth. Researchers, DNA They stated that it was possible to know which species this skull belonged to by analyzing it. However, DNA research does not seem possible. Because the dragon man at least 146.000 years old.
