Scientists at Hebrew University in Israel were able to reconstruct the human ancestor’s face. The ancient teen was a Denisovan, a species related to Neanderthals and Homo sapiens, who lived 70,000 years ago. Professor Liran Carmel said Denisovans had “a slanted forehead,” as well as “very wide skulls.” Remains of the 13-year-old Denisovan were found in a cave in Siberia in 2008. Scientists were able to extract DNA from those remains.
