Nesher Ramla homo type

Recently researchers in Israel have identified an unidentified ancient human, this human lived with the existing human species about 100,000 years ago.


  • Researchers say that this relic found from the city of Ramla represents one of the ‘last remaining’ remains of a very ancient human group.
  • In this discovery, researchers have found a partial skull and jaw of a person, which was present between 140,000 and 120,000 years ago.
  • Scientific analysis of these revealed that the person whose remains have been discovered does not completely match Homo sapiens i.e. modern human.
  • In addition, their characteristics are not entirely similar to those of Neanderthal humans, which were the only other human species to inhabit the area at the time.
  • Rather, this species was also present between the two other human species, which have not yet been identified by modern science.
  • Based on its analysis, it can be said that in ancient times interbreeding between different Homo species was a relatively common process.
