Fossils from Northern Kenya show that a new species of human lived two million years ago, researchers say.

The fossils, discovered in Xujiayao, Northern China, are made up of skull fragments, and nine teeth from four individuals. They have features of both a Neanderthal and a modern human.

Great share on characteristics of human evolution influenced by climate, and some related sensitivity issues.

I disagree with the "none of it is strange" under the sex thing. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE SCREWING ANIMALS --- humans are animals though. And I disagree with the shark part. Humans being collectively terrified of sharks is stupid.

A thigh bone found in China suggests an ancient species of human thought to be long extinct may have survived until as recently as the end of the last Ice Age. The 14,000 year old bone -- found among the remains of China's enigmatic 'Red Deer Cave people' -- has been shown to have features that resemble those of some of the most ancient members of the human genus, Homo, despite its young age.
