In Mongolia, evidence found that people traveled in the steppes of Eurasia 10 thousand years earlier than previously thought present time. This conclusion was reached by an international group scientists.
During excavations from 2011 to 2016, archaeologists were discovered artifacts whose age reaches 5 thousand years. Researchers have discovered several thousand tools made of stone, 826 of them were connected with ancient sites of people. Found guns are similar to those found in other places in Siberia and in the northwestern part of China. All this speaks of large scale. resettlement of people.
Given that no human remains were found, researchers are convinced that the tools were made modern people, but not Neanderthals or even Denisovans. The latter simply could not own the appropriate equipment making tools.
Scientists have identified climate by organic remains conditions established in the region. Climate was getting all warmer and wetter, which has become a favorable factor for cattle breeding.
The age of the detected tools corresponds to the time when there could be contact between modern people and Denisovans. Scientists believe that Denisovans could endow modern man genes that make the body more resistant to hypoxia (lack of oxygen in the organs). Therefore, he could settle in places with rarefied air, for example in Tibet.
Denisovans are an extinct species of ancient people, fossils which were found in Altai in the Denisov cave. This view considered a sister group to Neanderthals. More recently, scientists have found that Neanderthals and Denisovans could cross and have common offspring.
According to the latest data, modern people have left Africa less than 100 thousand years ago, settling in Eurasia, while crossing with Denisovans and Neanderthals. This is subsequently led to DNA hybridization of older species in the homo genome sapiens.
