"A previously unknown kind of human—the Denisovans—likely roamed Asia for thousands of years, probably interbreeding occasionally with humans
like you and me, according to a new genetic study."
I would like to bring to your attention to the Denisovans.
I find it fascinating that humans mated with Neanderthal man and now there is evidence that humans were mating with this newly discovered Denisovan
line of upright homonids considered Neanderthal’s sister race. They were bigger than both humans and Neanderthals. DNA evidence now suggests that
these Denisovans also bread with early humans. The fact that the hybrid offspring could reproduce means that they are NOT a separate race from
Nor were the Neanderthals a separate race, genetically speaking, because they too could interbreed with us. See below:
(And now... a brief look at Neanderthal Man. Did humans mate with Neanderthals? Yes, they did.

So why's that important?
from second source- "Neanderthal DNA is 99.7 percent identical to that of people, according to the analysis, which involved dozens of researchers.
Something in the remaining 0.3 percent must make us unique."
“It’s not about understanding Neanderthals,” said genome biologist Ed Green, who led the study as a research fellow in Paabo’s lab and is now
at the University of California at Santa Cruz. “It’s understanding us.”
What is it that makes us human when it’s now known that our ancestors mated with earlier or offshoot lines of it’s own nature?
What were the Neanderthals then? Who the hell is human here? And why is it that our ancestors seem like they really got around?
