Ancient skulls belong to unknown species that preceded the Neanderthals -

When I first found this article I had hoped it was some tie to the missing species which DNA evidence points to but so far is unknown in the fossil record.. Unfortunately that is not the case.... yet I still find stuff like this interesting.


A new analysis of ancient skulls retrieved from a deep bone pit in the Atapuerca Mountains of northern Spain, suggests they belong to an unknown species that has characteristics of Neanderthals, as well as early members of the hominid lineage. The study provides further evidence for the intermingling of ancient species and the murky origins of our closest relative.

The study, which is published in the journal Science, was conducted by a team of Spanish paleoanthropologists who analysed 17 ancient skulls dating back 430,000 years.

While the latest findings are vitally important in the quest to piece together the mysteries of human origins, they also serve to raise more questions than answers. Research over the last two years has shown us just how complex our ancient origins really area, and no ‘family tree’ can accurately describe the complicated intermingling that occurred millennia ago among different hominid species. Moreover, scientists are aware that there are traces of species in the DNA record, which are still completely unknown.

Nice find. Like all animals, humans had and have many types. The more the merrier!

Im still of the believe that most of our Human ancestory and links to other earlier hominids have been found, but are so damning towards religous beliefs, they will never see the light of day. Its kinda sad that we cannot have both religion and science without one completly derailing the other.

I have to agree with you!
Elongated skulls are found all over the planet, and we're supposed to believe it was a local practice of head binding.....
Spiral petroglyphs are found world wide, and we're told ancient civilizations lacked the ability of world travel....

Little bits and pieces keep surfacing that seem to indicate we're not getting accurate information on what has been discovered.

Thanks for sharing the info, Sky!

And maybe, just maybe, some off-worldly cousins too!

Why would the west care about 'religious beliefs' and what of those scientists who are not religious and in particular the militant few who are actively anti-religious.

For your theory to work all the scientists and support technicians who work in the fields where such finds are studied would have to be in world wide, multi-generational conspiracy, but one problem with that is that there are no central controlling groups for such people - so who coordinates it?

We may have to wait for that missing group to be found or as far as we know that group has already been uncovered but the necessary DNA testing hasn't been done yet.

We look forward to it.

Thanks for posting the article.

....and the elongated skulls are of human beings.....

Not to sure I understand your comment on spirals.

In ancient times a man could walk to Europe, Asia and Africa he might have been able to cross over to the Americas - as the native American did but as for continuous repeatable sea travel the evidence at present doesn't support it however we do know they made short trips, ie to Australia and some off shore islands.
