They say some modern people have Neanderthal DNA, I reckon certain European races have similar features as they describe the Neaderthals.

I was hoping for more detail in the article but I guess the discovery is too new. It was disturbing to think their cause of death was attack by hyenas.

All modern humans have between 1% and 3% Neanderthal DNA. Obviously the two species interbred occasionally.

Genetics is weird, full brothers, sisters can have different % of the different ancestors. I didn't know about that until I had a DNA test.

I was surprised to discover this too.
