About the Denisovans
It is said that in 2008, researchers first discovered the fossils of mysterious ancient humans. Through the ancient DNA extracted from the fossils, it was initially confirmed that this fossil probably belonged to the Denisovans.
In the following ten years, the number of Denisovan fossils discovered by archaeologists is actually very small. The fossils known to humans today only include three individual teeth, and it is not known which part of the body they belong to. Skeletal fragments, and a missing mandible. It is absolutely impossible for researchers to restore the general appearance of Denisovans through bone fragments.
Humanity's distant cousin
Through a large number of ancient fossils and traces of life left by ancient humans, humans have discovered Neanderthals, Flores, etc., and the ancestors of many humans also knew that they existed.
Just when researchers believed that all the ancient humans who lived on the earth had been found, a clue left by a mysterious ancient man quietly appeared in front of people. Through the excavated Denisovan finger bones, after testing, it was found that this mysterious ancient human existed about 200,000 years ago. This incident caused an uproar in the archaeological circle at that time. The results of the study show that part of the genes of the modern human body comes from the Denisovans, who are considered as distant cousins of humans.
Appearance of Denisovans
By comparing the appearance of modern humans and Neanderthals, the researchers combined the relevant evidence and materials that have been obtained so far, and roughly restored the appearance of Denisovans.
Strictly speaking, this method cannot obtain accurate data. Therefore, if people want to know the most accurate results, they still need to wait for the appearance of more Denisovan fossils. By then, all mysteries will be solved. Greeteduntie.
