Ice Age face reconstruction

29 Jun 2010

Excellent but long article on Ice Age Homo sapiens and Neanderthal interaction prompted by a Russian restoration of the facial features of a 30,000 years old skull (see www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/6113665-russians-restore-face-to-skull/ It appears the mtDNA of the Ice Age man still survives in modern European populations - but there is the usual recital of the consensus theory concerning the origins and spread of humans and assumptions on migration routes based on the Ice Age theory of a cold northern European and Asian climate and the restrictions imposed by an ice sheet. Good general read.
