Why alway Neanderthal ancestry - why never Homo Erectus?

As far as hominids go, why are so many interested in Neanderthals?

They were boring.

What did they ever do that was interesting, apart from the first Banting Diet?

Consider the Homo Erectus.

And apparently they didn't all just evolve into Neanderthals or whatever, they outlived other hominids regionally!

In fact, perhaps Bigfoot is NOT a Neanderthal, but an unwashed Homo Erectus.

Consider:


Interpreting evolution: H. erectus / H. ergaster / H. sapiens Model of the evolution of several species of genus Homo over the last 2 million years (vertical axis) based on Stringer (2012).[54] Stringer (2003, 2012) and Reed, et al. (2004) and others have produced schematic graph-models for interpreting the evolution of Homo sapiens from earlier species of Homo, including Homo erectus and/or Homo ergaster, see graphs at right. Blue areas denote the existence of one or more hominin species at a given time and place (that is, region). These and other interpretations differ mainly in the taxonomy and geographical distribution of species.[54][55] Stringer (see upper graph-model) depicts the presence of H. erectus as dominating the temporal and geographic development of human evolution; and as persisting broadly throughout Africa and Eurasia for nearly 2 million years, eventually evolving into H. heidelbergensis / H. rhodesiensis, which in turn evolved into H. sapiens. Reed, et al. shows Homo ergaster as the ancestor of Homo erectus; then it is ergaster, or a variety of ergaster, or perhaps a hybrid of ergaster and erectus, which develops into species that evolve into archaic and then modern humans and then out of Africa. Both models show the Asian variety of Homo erectus going extinct recently. And both models indicate species admixture: early modern humans spread from Africa across different regions of the globe and interbred with earlier descendants of H. heidelbergensis / H. rhodesiensis, namely the Neanderthals, Denisovans, as well as unknown archaic African hominins. See admixture; and see Neanderthal admixture theory.[56]

Oh my, how much Homo Erectus am I?
I can't wait for this DNA result.

Porn!
Hundreds and thousands of years later and that's all we gotta show for it.
Yeah, bring it on!

Erm, honey, I know you're old school and raised in Greek and Latin, but when we said it's a show on Homo Erectus, we meant something slightly different.

While i'm not really sure what you are asking, I feel like it is because caucasian people carry genetic markers from neandrithals while other cultural groups carry less or none. It would be a good way to figure out if someone had an english ancestor but they lived in india or somthing.

No, like the Neanderthal - 50 000 ways to tell you have Neanderthal ancestry.

A receding chin, a bun in the skull, they all look like miniature body-builders ... red hair, for god's sake.

Thank heavens they never subjected Homo Erectus to this circus.

I'm pretty sure my ancestors came down a different line called Hetero Erectus.

Well, if I'm Neanderthal I must have been Homo Erectus before that.

So why not measure that?

Imagine banning Homo Sapiens art:
www.news24.com...

But Homo Erectus, my people, proud ancestry, never made art.

But art on us.

Should it be banned for nudity?

More like monkey, or more like human?

Naked monkey OK, but naked human bad.

Oh yeah, just before they turned into Neanderthals!

Those people knew cave domestication!

The Worst Jobs in History.

Number one: The Neanderthals.

I don't think they had jobs.

So if you bring them back they won't take yer jobs.

They might take your women though ...

But hey, Europe's used to that by now.
