- Teeth and jaw fossils of an early hominid were found with fossils of other animals.
- Do hominid fossils from one to two million years ago represent a single species or numerous branches on the family tree, some of which died out?
- A glance at the fossil remains of these hominids shows that Neandertal bones are much more robust than those of modern Homo sapiens.
- It may be possible to extract DNA from the bones of human ancestors and other hominids who died up to one million years ago, researchers believe.
- Based on fossils discovered in earlier digs, hominids appear to have lived in the area for nearly six million years.
