Stunning! Scientists reveal the surprising genetic identity of early human remains from roughly 400,000 years ago in Spain (Atapuerca). New tests on human bones hidden in a Spanish cave for some 400,000 years set a new record for the oldest human DNA sequence ever decoded—and may scramble the scientific picture of our early relatives. The bones were first thought to belong to European Neanderthals, but analysis showed they are genetically closer to the Siberian Denisovans.

It’s good to be back to blogging. After a week without it, I got a lot more done on my schedule than I otherwise might. I ended the social media part of my break just this last Thursday, a couple of days early, I know, but necessary to keep from isolating myself socially while otherwise alone with family and cats.

The appointment this Wednesday went well, and I’ll be going back in two months…
