DNA from an unknown ancient ancestor of human

Recommended Posts

I wonder how much more they are going to find out about us with our DNA?

  • This ancient ancestor of humans may have been Homo Erectus, the team think 

A lot of Asian and NA scholars had thought the same thing for years. Shovel incisors found in Asians and Indians are only found in Asian Homo Erectus. Not in ancestral H.Sapiens or Neanderthals. 

The idea that the yellow skin gene came from H. Erectus was also floating around until it was found out it probably came from Denisovans.

I hope they find that mysterious "ghost" hominid who's genes are found in some Sub-Saharan Africans.  I think that's H. Erectus too.

We assume the differences between modern humans from different areas of the world are due to homo sapiens specialising for their environments. It might be a case of the populations from different areas carrying different genetic legacies from past homo species. Or even a mixture of specialisation and genetic legacy.

Gees you write great stuff. I just googled half of one of your sentances and spent the last hour or so reading links. Then discussed the origins of pigmentation with my flatmate. Bloody fascinating.

And I haven't got to looking up the ghost hominid yet.

Cheers bro. You rock. :tu:

My daughter looked at my tan this year and saw I am an orangish brown.  She tans a more olive.  She is half Irish and a quarter of that is Black Irish.   My colouring comes from my Ukranian side when I tan, otherwise I am very pale due to my Scandinavian sides.   The thought that way more is hidden in our DNA and the history of our hominid ancestry could be so much broader is fascinating  to me

You certainly make a very good point here, and I think your right our hominid ancestry is much broader than even science is currently aware of.

Take care

Most Ukrainians have Turkic (Asian) genes from the Kipchak-Cuman invasion. ( Scratch a Russian, find a Tartar). 

Also the Eastern Iranian Scythian/Sarmatians carried Northern Asian (Siberian) genes in their return trip to Europe and passed them to the Slavs that absorbed them.

In our case, our Ukranian ancestors looked incredibly Asian as they got older.  Pretty sure there is Chinese or Mongolian in a great grandma. I have some features that are Asian

I forgot about the Mongol invasion.....

Mongol are pretty much genetically the same as Eastern Turkic ( except for the ones mixed with Iranian) and Manchu.

I am just a huge mixture genetically, nothing in my ancestors would surprise me.  I think that's why the discoveries in our DNA is so fascinating.  Maybe more hominids did breed than originally thought and their DNA is still floating around in some of us.

I found it interesting that my Jowett blood from Normandy wasn't Norse but Eastern Iranian Alan. 

We probably bred with more human species than is in our genes. Half the offspring between humans and Neanderthals were "mules" so I'd imagine it happened a lot.

I think if most knew their genetic lineage, their perspective would change. From what I've learned of mine I'm a salt and pepper person. A little bit of everything. Though I suspect I'm 100% Neanderthal.:lol:
