A thigh bone from Spain is 400,000 years old, it is the oldest human genetic material, DNA, ever sequenced. It tells us Neanderthals and Denisovans shared a common ancestor but then diverged. Our ancestors interbred with both these extinct lineages. Neanderthal DNA makes up 1 to 4 percent of modern Eurasian genomes, and Denisovan DNA makes up 4 to 6 percent of modern New Guinean and Melanesian islands people.
