How many species actually exist? Probably the exact answer to this question we will not know for a long time. The fact that new discoveries happen all the time — here and there archaeologists have found fossils belonging to the ancestors of man. Recently, scientists have discovered a pair of children's milk teeth buried in a remote archaeological monument in the North-East of Siberia. It turned out that the find belongs to a previously unknown species of humans. According to scientists, they lived during the last .
In a large-scale study conducted in different places of Siberia, was discovered children's milk teeth. The age of the remains, experts estimate in 10 000 years. This suggests that the ancient people survived in extreme conditions 31 000 years ago. Experts suggest that they hunted , rhinos and Buffalo.
Moreover, scientists have found fossils of genetic similarity with the native Americans. Yes, that's right — the first time such a close genetic link discovered outside .
Scientists have named a new group of people "ancient North Siberians". The researchers believe their existence is a significant part of human history. The study involved an international group of scientists, including Russian experts. The study published in the journal Nature.
And suddenly the truth?:
So look discovered baby teeth
DNA was extracted from the only human remains — two tiny teeth — they were found in a large archaeological monument near the river Yana.
This is not the only interesting find:
The Monument was found by Russian scientists in 2001. This one of a kind monument, testifying to human presence in the Arctic. In addition to the remains of ancient people have been discovered more than 2,500 artifacts from bone and stone tools belonging to our ancestors. ?<, h2>, Where lived the ancestors of Europeans?
Age finds time coincides with the period of decline of the Neanderthals. In Central Russia, including in the North of Siberia in the ancient archaeological sites were previously discovered samples of the human genome.
According to the scientists, "ancient North Siberians" are more closely related to Europeans than with Asians, and seem to have migrated from Western Eurasia soon after the divergence between Europeans and Asians. The genetic relationship of these ancient people with the first Americans tells about the discovery of «missing link» in the understanding of the genetics of Indian origin.
So, discovered teeth, which, according to scientists, children are lost in a natural way, gave us a new view about the isolation and mixing of population, which occurred during the coldest and harshest time of the ice age. In General these remains belong to the ancestry of peoples, which since then became the ancestors of the indigenous peoples of North and South America.
