Tokyo, April 11, AZERTAC
Researchers in the Philippines announced today that they have discovered a species of ancient human previously unknown to science, according to National Geographic.
The small-bodied hominin, named Homo luzonensis, lived on the island of Luzon at least 50,000 to 67,000 years ago. The hominin—identified from a total of seven teeth and six small bones—hosts a patchwork of ancient and more advanced features. The landmark discovery makes Luzon the third Southeast Asian island in the last 15 years to bear signs of unexpectedly ancient human activity.
