Less known is information that has recently emerged about the possibility that modern human ancestors were also busy with at least one other archaic human species.

Additional information comes from a new study by researchers at Uppsala University. The study yielded findings that indicated people in East Asia share genetic material with archaic humans known as Denisovans, suggesting that the modern human ancestors of East Asians interbred with them about 20,000 years ago.

A lot better than pure bred Homo Sapiens for sure!

Somewhat better than Homo Sapiens / Neandertal hybrids too.

Yes, it’s interesting to speculate what the Neanderthals were good at - romantic poetry, philosophy, government and organized warfare.
