Theory on Super-Archaic Human Interbreeding Gaining Acceptance

The research shows that super-archaic humans migrated from Africa to Eurasia two million years ago (note: Homo erectus is classed as human). There is nothing special about them. Super-archaic is just a name given to them. Hominins are the line that resulted in us, from the time when the divergence from chimpanzee and bonobo occurred.


Super-archaics had a long time out of Africa alone. Well we think that is the case. Much later, between 400,000 and 300,000 years ago another ancient human moved from Africa. Those who went to Europe evolved into Neanderthals, while those moving into Asia became Denisovans.

Our ancestors who remained in Africa became Homo sapiens, us. There is a lot of debate and disagreement about when we left Africa. Theories range from 200,000 years ago or even earlier to 60,000 before the present. But it is thought that the early leavers died out - not yet fully proven.

When Homo-sapiens met Neanderthals and Denisovans interbreeding took place. However, the Neanderthals and Denisovans carried genes from super-archaics who they interbred with 700,000 years earlier. They should not have had fertile offspring because super-archaics were so distantly related that it was not thought impossible.

It must be noted that this article is based on findings from scientific research. However, one needs to be cautious about "theories" based on genetics of modern humans. Conclusions cannot be specific, only general.
