Bones discovered in an island cave may be a new human species
Scientists found what they say are the remains of three relatives of modern humans in a cave in the Philippines. The bones and teeth represent a new species, they conclude, which they named Homo luzonensis. These newfound humans, who lived 67,000 years ago, had a mix of modern and primitive features. Together with other Homo species, they show that human evolution was highly versatile.
