Scientists Make BOMBSHELL Discovery About Last Common Ancestor!

In this video, scientists make a bombshell discovery about the last common ancestor of all humans (Petralona Man) ! This discovery could change the way we view human evolution, and could even lead to new insights into the genetics of diseases. Watch this video to find out more about this exciting discovery, and to find out how you can learn more about it!

Homo sapiens share a common ancestor with Neanderthals, yet little is known about this ancient population. For the first time, researchers have utilized innovative digital tools to reproduce the cranium of Homo sapiens' and Neanderthals' last common ancestor.
According to the findings, we split the human-Neanderthal lineage roughly 300,000 years earlier than previously assumed. We know humans have a shared ancestor with the extinct Neanderthals, our closest prehistoric relatives.

However, the identity of this old ancestor population is unknown because fossils from the Middle Pleistocene epoch, when the lineage split, are extremely sparse and fragmented.
Researchers have now used digital morphometrics and statistical algorithms on cranial fossils from both species' evolutionary histories to rebuild in 3D the skull of Homo sapiens and Neanderthals for the first time.
