Has an Australian scientist been instrumental in helping discover a new species of human? And what does this mean for our understanding of human evolutionary history? These are two questions at the heart of a new documentary screening this week on ABC1.
With Enigma Man we follow the groundbreaking research of Aussie paleoanthropologist Darren Curnoe and his Chinese colleague, paleontologist Ji Xueping.
Their study of ancient human remains found in a remote cave in South-west China looks at the idea there may have been another species of human existing alongside our ancestors as recently as 11,000 – 14,000 years ago.
Dubbed the '‘Red Deer Cave people’', these ancient people, or, more precisely, their remains – so similar, yet so physically different from us – are much, much younger than our Neanderthal relatives, posing some seriously interesting questions. Were they really another human species? And if so, what happened to them? Why did they die out? How did they live? And what were their interactions with our own early relatives?

Hi Didge. I seem to remember some years back that mysterious finds were made in China. As in your article, it wasn't sure if they were a different species to Neanderthal and ourselves. Fascinating isn't it. As they say, 'watch this space.'

Indeed we are, Camm.' I wonder how many species, including wildlife, have disappeared because of we Homo Sapiens.

As in wildlife, most species have different versions. Mother Nature didn't foster just one type of everything, but variations, so why not different types of humans, one example being Neanderthals.

Hi Victor. Can you add a bit of meat to that very tasty bone? Apparently we contain about 3-5% of Neanderthal DNA.

Concerning the article above, posted by Didge, one Ufologist claimed the finds in the cave were aliens!!!
Er, ahem, I don't think I'll consider that as a fact.

Undisputed heavy-weights of evolution my ass; sea sponges have been around for more than three-quarters of a billion years! Smile

They're perfectly evolved! You don't survive 760 million years when you've got a bunch of flaws Smile
