Ancient Migration Patterns

In 1856, the first bone fragments of the ancient human species Homo neanderthalensis, or Neanderthals, were discovered in Germany. Over 150 years later, a 120,000 Neanderthal bone, also found in Germany, was found to be genetically similar to Neanderthals that roamed Europe tens of thousands of years later, furthering scientists' knowledge of the migration patterns of different human species and their development.
