Only we, the Homo sapiens, who lived side by side with Neanderthals and Denisovans of Siberia survived and a study offers fresh insights into what gave the modern man the advantage over other extinct humans.
The remains of the world`s oldest known stone-tipped throwing spears are so ancient that they actually predate the earliest known fossils for our species by 85,000 years.
A well-preserved adult male skull, dating back to 1.8 million years ago, suggests that early man was a single species with individuals that could look quite different from each other.
An international study has questioned a theory, which held that the last Neanderthals persisted in southern Iberia at the same time that modern humans advanced in the northern part of the peninsula.
Researchers, studying ancient DNA, have suggested that most Neanderthals were largely extinct 50,000 yrs ago.
A fresh look at fossilized remains has turned up a surprise: the earliest modern people in Europe.
