This is cool.

Moreover, the authors found that all three individuals had Neanderthal ancestors a few generations back in their family history.

I’m currently reading Who We Are and How We Got There by David Reich which I thought I’d review in the forum once I’m done reading, but once I saw these articles I was curious to see what he’d had to say about the European mixing. I’ve read about so many populations and migrations so far in Eurasia it’s hard to keep them straight. :slightly_smiling_face: Finally found the section this morning where he talks about it. Same thing as in the article - scientists knew there was mixing in the Near East but in Europe it was suspected but not confirmed.
