Discovery of Oldest DNA Scrambles Human Origins Picture – Leading To More Questions Than Answers

Researchers have uncovered a new clue about human origins after discovering the oldest known human DNA in a legendary Spanish archeological site called Sima de los Huesos, or the “Pit of Bones.” Researchers were able to extract DNA from a leg bone that was estimated to be 400,000 years old. That’s about 100,000 years older than the previous oldest human DNA, and 200,000 years older than modern humans. In addition, scientists were surprised to find that the specimen was related to a little-known group of ancient human relatives known as Denisovans that were previously only found in Siberia.
