A strange ancient skull recently uncovered adds to mounting evidence
that humans and Neanderthals interbred and suggests that humans evolved considerably after settling the European continent some
40,000 years ago.
The skull is unlike anything previously dug up.
Researchers led by Joao Zilhao of the University of Bristol and Erik
Trinkaus of Washington University compared the features of the cra-
nium, found in a cave in southwestern Romania, with other human
samples from the time.
The reconstructed cranium is called Oase 2. Radiocarbon dating re-
vealed only that it is at least 35,000 years old.
But its mandible is similar to Oase 1, found previously at the surface
of the cave and dated more firmly to about 40,500 years ago.
The team has concluded that both fossils are the same age.
Oase 2 has the same proportions as modern human craniums and
has other features that are non-Neanderthal.
But other features are unusual for a modern human, the scientists
These include a retreating forehead and exceptionally large upper
molars found principally among the Neanderthals.

That actually won't take very long actually, in fact it's thought that it
will only take about two to three centuries before there is'nt race at
all naturally, but rather one colour of people, more or less a lightish
brown, that will resemble a 'white' person with a semi-deep tan.

I don't think that will happen because too many people stick with their own race, therefore I believe there will not be just one race.
