Did our hominid ancestors leave Africa and return?

The phrase “Out of Africa” might conjure up visions of a romantic movie of 1985 or the memoirs on which they were based. To anthropologists the turn of phrase refers to the theory, dominant since the days of Charles Darwin, that our human ancestors probably evolved in this continent.
In The Real Planet of the Apes, Professor David Begun of U of T’s department of anthropology proposes that a significant component of human evolution in fact took place in Europe between nine million and 12.5 million years ago. Hominids, he argues, then drifted back to Africa in a "homecoming" response to climate change. 
Begun’s theory – called “explosive” by Princeton University Press – is based substantially on field work in which undergraduates participated.
“I felt extremely lucky to have contributed to even the most minor extent in Dr. Begun's research,” says Klara Komza, a biological anthropology major. “It was my first taste at discovering something in the field.”
U of T News writer Arthur Kaptainis talked with Begun about his theories, his book and the importance of involving undergrad students in research.FULL STORY HERE

Sonic Wldebeast

A strange fossil wildebeest had hollowed-out headgear that let it trumpet like a dinosaur.
The Ice Age beast, named Rusingoryx atopocranion, lived on Kenya’s Rusinga Island between 75,000 and 50,000 years ago, back when the area was carpeted in dry grasslands. The species was previously only known from partial skulls, but now a bonebed has revealed that they were more bizarre than anyone expected.Link

The Headlines are Only Half the Story

The Headlines are Only Half the Story

You may have heard about the Silk Road scandal in Time magazine, Wired magazine, or any of a hundred other places.
Curtis Green took a job working for a company called Silk Road, where (unknown to Curtis) his boss, nicknamed “Dread Pirate Roberts,” was trafficking drugs over the internet.
When the FBI and the DEA got wind of it, they set Curtis up in a sting operation, staging a drug bust using planted evidence.
When Curtis’s boss found out about it, he hired a hit man to cover his trail, but the FBI found out about it and staged Curtis’s assassination. The Dread Pirate Roberts got two life sentences for his crimes, but the story wasn’t over.
The FBI and DEA agents that were investigating the crimes decided to steal millions from Silk Road.  Now they’re also in prison.
Curtis wants to tell his story and clear his name. Due to legal issues, he hasn’t been able to talk or write about what happened–until now. As you can imagine, the legal bills were staggering.  So I’ve agreed to help him start a fundraiser so that he can pay for some basic help on the writing and editing of his amazing autobiography.  We’ll be kicking the fundraiser off next week, offering exciting gifts and prizes, but we need your help.
If you’ve got a blog, we’d like you to share our page when it’s up.  If you’re on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, we’d be very grateful if you would share our posts or mention it.
If you can email my assistant, Kami, at kami_marynda[at]yahoo[dot]com, we’ll make sure that you get the links that you need. Curtis is hiring me to do some editing on his autobiography and a portion of the funds that I receive from that will go to pay medical expenses for my son Ben, who suffered a traumatic brain injury three years ago.  (Yes, we’re still paying on that!)
Thank you in advance for your help and consideration.

mtDNA U: Human haplogroup that arose in a Neanderthal Population

I'm certain that mtDNA Haplogroup U resulted from the neanderthal occupation of SW Asia from 70k to 40k ago. 
Every time we've extracted the haplogroup from 20-28k remains, it has been in a Neanderthal Hybrid. These skeletons are so rugged and neanderthal like that if they hadn't extracted the DNA we might be calling them Neanderthals. 
It stays out of Africa until 20K ago and then expands rapidly from the area right across from Gibralter with the Ibero-Maurusian culture. 
21K ago there was a pure Neanderthal population living in the Rock of Gibralter. 
hap U is now the majority haplogroup in Europe, and has been there for 55k. 
No Hss were in Europe 55k ago. 
Ibero-Maurusians were described as being even more robust and neanderthal-like than Cro-Magnons. 
But here's the most damning evidence of all: 
Haplogroup U has shown a superiority to all other haplogroups in avoiding alcoholism due to childhood sexual abuse. 
In other words, any U woman who couldn't deal with neanderthal sexual abuse died or failed to reproduce. 

But she was not alone. The distribution and spread of Y Hap DE and E in Europe and Africa also show evidence of first arising inside of a Neanderthal population and being distributed  through Africa both around 38k ago and during the later Ibro-Maurusian.
Either DE's mother wasn't showing when the neanderthals invaded, or a Homo Sapiens Spaiens snuck into camp sometime after the invasion, or some males were allowed to live.
A hybrid male would have been weaker than pure neanderthals, but he could produce non-sterile males with mtDNA U, and mtDNA was being chosen over Neanderthal women by the neanderthals.


How the Origin Myth of the Hadza Explains Evolution

"The Hadza's oral history of their own past is divided into four epochs, each inhabited by a different culture. According to this tradition, in the beginning of time, the world was inhabited by hairy giants called the Akakaanebe or Gelanebe, "ancestors". The Akakaanebe did not possess tools or fire; they hunted game by staring at it and it fell dead; they ate the meat raw. They did not build houses but slept under trees, as the Hadza do today in the dry season. In older versions of this story, fire was not used because it was physically impossible in the earth's primeval state, while younger Hadza, who have been to school, say that the Akakaanebe simply did not know how. 
In the second epoch, the Akakaanebe were succeeded by the Tlaatlanebe, equally gigantic but without hair. Fire could be made and used to cook meat, but animals had grown more wary of humans and had to be chased and hunted with dogs. The Tlaatlanebe were the first people to use medicines and charms to protect themselves from enemies and initiated the epeme rite. They lived in caves. 
The third epoch was inhabited by the Hamakwabe "nowadays", who were smaller than their predecessors. They invented bows and arrows, and containers for cooking, and mastered the use of fire. They also built houses like those of Hadza today. The Hamakwabe were the first of the Hadza's ancestors to have contact with non-foraging people, with whom they traded for iron to make knives and arrowheads. The Hamakwabe also invented the gambling game lukuchuko. 
The fourth epoch continues today and is inhabited by the Hamaishonebe, "modern". When discussing the Hamaishonebe epoch, people often mention specific names and places, and can approximately say how many generations ago events occurred."[15] 

The Hadza received introgression from a hominid that split off from our lineage 1.2-1.3 million years ago. 
The last sweep of hairlessness (dark skin genes) occurred in Africa 1.2 million years ago. 
1.3 Million year old introgression = hairy ergaster, hairy giants without fire 

The Hadza's are "little people" dominated by Y Hap A and therefore closest to "Former Y Adam" (160k old A not 270k+ year old A00). Neighbor tribes of little people, and possibly the Hadza, also have 700k introgression. 
700K introgression = Kabwe/ Bodo Archaic Homo Sapiens and the spread of Levaloise into Africa. 
700K Introgression = African "heidelbergs," hairless giants with fire 

160K- Age of Hadza's A lineage, earliest date of proto-Microliths in Africa (Aterian culture, bows and arrows, first fossils of Archaic Homo Sapiens Sapiens in Africa). 

Homo Ergaster and Homo Heidelbergensis in Africa are both extremely tall. Ergaster has been said to average 6'1 and some populations of "Archaic Homo Sapiens" reached 7' on average. 

Archaic Homo Sapiens Sapiens, on the other hand, are all much shorter. 

Mbo people (270k old Y Hap 270k) are average global height (5'8 - 5'10) or taller, whereas all groups dominated by Y Haplogroup A (not A00) are well below global average (5 foot to 5'4). 

The only other populations worldwide who exibit 5' to 5'4 average in males are those dominated by Y hap C or D or which contain basal Y Hap C. 

Y hap D dominate Andaman Islanders have similar 600k Introgression. 
Proto-microliths and 5' tall robust archaic Homo Sapiens Sapiens appear in Northern India 150k ago alongside larger bodied Levaloise using Archaic Homo Sapiens who have been there since 600k years BP. 

The 150K old 5' tall Archaic Homo Sapiens Sapiens has a shoulder bone almost identical to Andamanese islanders. Other than being robust they are anatomically modern, as all early anatomically modern people were. The difference between Anatomically modern and Archaic Homo Sapiens Sapiens in this case, and in most cases, is in the features of the face and skull. 

Anatomically Modern Homo Sapiens Sapiens appears in NE Africa around 120k ago and is in Israel and China and much of North and east Africa by 116k to 96K ago. 

These beautiful facial traits, and especially the chin, spread through many populations. I don't think this spread marks migration as much as admixture, because it takes a long time to spread and is still absent in many populations as late as 10k ago. 
It also spread to neanderthals, as 40k to 70k southern neanderthals also display a chin. 


Anatomically Modern Homo Sapiens Sapiens likely arose from admixture between various Y Haplogroup A (160K) people who used bows and arows and were around 5' tall, an advanced group of Archaic Homo Sapiens (Idaltu?) who were mostly Y haplogroup A, and a possible third group that comprised the genome of mt DNA Haplogroup LM3) 
The latter two probably used the lavaloise technique and hunted big game with spears. A00 and LM3 are the same age (270k - 350K branching point) which would mean that they left our genome around that time and mated with the "African heidelbergs." and then rejoined us at a later date. 
After admicture, the Hss techniques mixed with "heidelberg" technigues and began to form one of the two roots of the "Upper Paleolithic" in Western Eurasia. 
The chin and other facial features spread through all three or more populations that had admixed to create them, because it looked smokin' hot. 

Microlithic cultures are the trademark of the pygmies who took over Africa, the Middle East, and Northern India. they were the first Homo Sapiens Sapiens. Some of them became Anatomically Modern by mixing with at least one other group. The ones who did not admix gained them later as they radiated throughout the world via sexually selected sweeps. 

Do the Hadza remember this so perfectly from 150K ago when they invented the Bow and Arrow or brought it to Africa? or do they remember it from 35K ago, when they entered Sub-Sahara in flight from neanderthal hybrids and received the introgression? 
Or did both of their "giants" exist into historic times? We are not their "giants," as a neighboring tribe of more "Bantu" haplogroups is often in their legends helping them fight the "hairless giants" who are much taller. 

Or is this just a freaky coincidence that they tell it so perfectly? 


The Neanderthal Invasion Model

Sometime between 3 million and 1.8 million years ago, a part of our genetic population branched off from us and proceeded the rest of Early Homo out of Africa into the wide world. The proof of this is in the 3 million year old introgressed genes of certain people living in South Asia today and in the fossils the Hobbit found in Liang Bua in Indonesia. The Madrasian tools of India are also evidence of their movements across Eurasia, and we can guess that they were much like Homo Habilis and Homo Georgicus, if not Homo Habilis and Homo Georgicus themselves.
The point is, our ancestors were just like them, probably breeding with them, and not far behind them in their exodus out of Africa. It's just that sometime around 2.2 million years ago our clan developed a new brain gene that gave us a little bit of an edge over everybody else, and we started expanding faster than everyone else, incorporating everyone else into our population and culture while simultaneously outbreeding them. The first evidence we find of this expansion is Homo Ergaster, who appears simultaneously with a more advanced type of tool in Eastern Africa around 1.8 million years ago.
Researchers call part of this expansion the Acheulian, but it extended far beyond the area where that tradition is found.
Those early hominids who proceeded us out of Africa were mostly assimilated in the wave of our expansion, but  some of them managed to avoid  it and lived separately from our direct ancestors in South Asia and SE Asia until the late paleolithic or possibly even historic times. We call these the Hobbit in South-East Asia and Homo Vanara when referring to the group in South Asia, after the Vedic word for the forest dwelling ape-men of southern India.
Shortly after the appearance of Homo Ergaster in Africa, Acheulian tools appear in India. However, the older tools traditions persist in South Asia alongside the newer ones, and there are no fossils of either proposed species from this time. The fossil of Homo erectus modjokertensis shows up on Java, but the Phase I lithic industry there is akin to neither of its Western counterparts and this might be due to a difference in resources. The hominid was a child when it died, and therefore not fully developed, but its morphology seems intermediary between specimens like Georgicus and Habilis and later homo erectus

Fossils of the sister species of homo ergaster, homo erectus, show up in South East Asia around 1.4 million years ago . While some of the Javan fossils seem even more advanced than homo ergaster, others harken back to Modjokertensis, Georgicus, Habilis, and even the Australopithecines. Contemporary specimens of this age from Africa are rarely referred to as ergaster anymore, but take on the erectus moniker as well. Sometimes the term is used is Homo eregasterectus.
But from 1.4 to 1 million years ago, Africa looks to have been all but abandoned, at least for intermittent periods on that probably coincide with 41 thousand year temparature cycles. There are no fossils and few tools to mark the presence of eregasterectus, and this may coincide with hot periods during an interglacial when the Sahara expanded to make at least the northern and eastern part of the continent inhospitable. However, we know that Africa was not completely devoid of the species, because between 1.3 and 1.2 million years ago, a population of Homo ergasterectus separated itself from our gene pool and remained there until it was assimilated by the Sub-Saharan pygmies (or their immediate ancestors) over a million years later.
For the first time, hominid bones appear in Turkey and Spain. They are more aking to early Ergaster and Georgicus than to Homo ergasterectus, and are associated with Phase I Oldowan tools, which suggests to many that they were not part of the spreading culture that used Phase 2 or Acheulian tools.
The fossils on Java become more plentiful and diverse during this proposed "hot period," with the first finds of Java man. This subspecies is perhaps more closely related to Homo Ergasterectus than any other hominid of 1.4 million years ago, and is the type specimen for "Classic Erectus." However, Java man shared his island with other more basal forms, such as Meganthropus, which might share affinities with Homo Habils and even the Austrolipithecines, and other less robust specimens that resemble the earlier Modjokertensis, Georgicus, and Habilis.
It could be that what we are seeing on Java at this time is a snapshot of what was happeneing in the whole of Sundaland just before 1.4 million years ago, when the continent was above sea level. Jave would have been undesirable highlands until the sea rose, potentially stranding several species of SE Asian hominid together. In any event. around 1.1 million years ago yet another population separated itself from our direct ancestral genomic population. This is the Microcephalin D hominid, who we will call "Classic Ertectus," and it did not recombine with our own genome until around 37,000 years ago. Classic Erectus could also be responsible for the introgressed genes of the "Mystery Hominid" present in Denisovans, Malanesians, SE Asians, and some South Asians. This population must have had at least some genetic exchange with the Hobbit or Homo Vanara since "Mystery Hominid" introgression into the aforementioned populations always comes with genes from the 3 million year old divergence of Homo.
It can be seen as a far shore of the genomic wave in which Homo Ergasterectus brought  SRGAP2C to the Early Hominids spread across Eurasia who only had SRGAP2B. The Los Huesos, who's mtDNA is 450,000 years older that of the "Denisovan genome," may also be evidence of this sweep, as are the Denisovans themselves. Classic Erectus broke off about 1.1 million years ago, the mitochondrial ancestor of Los Huesos broke of around 1.05 million years ago, and the oldest (possibly introgressed) mtDNA haplogroups of Denisovan broke off about a million years ago.
However,  some Early Homo populations must have avoided the SRGAP2C sweep, because we have 3 million year old introgression without the accompanying "Mystery Hominid" or "Denisovan" in a few people living in Western South Asia today. Plus, we have the Hobbits of South East Asia who's morphology suggests an initial split from our ancestral population at around the same time.
The distribution of microcephalin D in modern humans suggests that the hominid that originally carried it lived somewhere between Papua New Guinea and Pakistan, since populations these two areas have the highest amount and its distribution across the globe points to an origin point in either Eastern South Asia or South East Asia.
Could it be that a population of Classic Erectus was stranded on Java or another Sunda island during a hot period of high seas roughly 1.1 million years ago, along with with a population of Hobbits?
If so, some Hobbits apparently escaped across the Wallace Line to Flores right before the hot period, or remained at least somewhat separate from Classic Erectus on another Sunda Island near Java until 780,000 years ago at the beginning of a glacial period when seas would have dropped again and fossils of the Hobbit's ancestors actuall start appearing on Flores.
So at this point, we have two species of Early Homo and one species of Classic Erectus living in South Asia and/or South East Asia. We have our genome of Homo Ergasterectus living Betwee or in South Africa and India. We have a species of Homo Ergasterectus living in African isolation, and we have a species of early Ergasterectus in Europe as well.
1 million years in the date of the diversion of the oldest of the Denisovan mtdna haplogroups, and these are only four hundred and fifty thousand years younger than the mtdna of Los Huesos. The nuclear DNA of Denisovan is branched off from us hundreds of thousands of years later. What this tells us is that Los Huesos females (and probably Classic Erectus females) were part of a genetic sweep that replaced Early Homo  mtDNA haplogroups across Eurasia, and Denisovan females are the result of a later part of that same sweep that replaced Early Homo in China. About 1.1 million years ago, a population branched off from our own drove all Early Homo mtDNA into extinction except for a few small population living in splendid isolation somewhere in S. or SE Asia. Another way to say this is that Denisovan women conquered China before the rest of Denisova did, but in actuality they were probably not true Denisovans until the defining nuclear DNA arrived.
At the same time that the earliest of denisovan mothers we're branching off from our own genomic population, a new brain mutation called SRGAP2D was born. It is probable that the mutation happened when one of our ancestors that were living somewhere in or between africa and South Asia at the time, but we cannot rule out the possibility that arose in one of the aforementioned subspecies of hominid. The gene is present in all modern humans, so if it enter breast before or round 350000 years ago we would not be able to tell whether it introgressed or not. Help the Common Man your modern humans neanderthals and nuclear denisovans where the next to me a year worldwide genomic sweep, we will assume that the former.
Heidelberg Man is the name most often used to describe this common ancestor. The Heidelberg man may have his roots in the SRGAP2D mutation that appeared 1 million years ago, fossils don't show up until around 600,000 years ago,
As expected, they show up on the outer borders of the area I've proposed for our own ancestors: the Narmada Valley in North West India and East Africa. Narmada Man and the Bodo and Kabwe craniums have a gigger brain size than any hominid that has come before them, and share traits with later "Classic Heidelbergs" from Africa and Eurasia. However, Homo Ergasterectus material is also appearing in east Africa at this time, having begun reappearing in the fossil record around 1 million years ago after a 400,000 year hiatus.
Only slightly later, the cranium of Ceprano Man is deposited in Europe. It is highly divergent from the antecessor fossils that precede it there and has more affinities with Classic erectus and its contemporary Narmada Man than it has with Kabwe and Bodo, but shares a resemblance to later Classic Heidelberg.
This bears all the markings of a diffusion of an advanced hominid from South West Asia or the Middle East, who we will call Classic Heidelberg.

Speaking of the ancestral population that loud between africa europe central Asia and India drum a million years 2 sometime after 200000 years ago, I do not see that they look much like classic heidelberg. They were likely comparatively short, with a head shape more like classic erectus. Mixing wheel homo ergaster and Ergasterectus to the immediate Wells and North is probably what is classic heidelberg the tall stature, more rounded cranium, and neonatal face as it radiated into Africa and Europe. It may also heidelberg interred europe from northeast, germany and the British Isles had not yet made it with antecessor, goodwill in southern Europe previous and seems to be the word neanderthal. Perhaps even a separate group of early Heidelberg, Ceprano Man Man, entered from the southeast, and the three groups plus the hardships of a later Ice Age is what begat Classic Neanderthal in Europe. Nneka call me many signs of hybridization between 600000 and 250000 years ago in the fossil record, until Classic Neanderthal appears and becomes ubiquitous there.
The greatest evidence we have for them entergy the Los huesos specimen. It has mtdna from the earliest wave of denisovan expansion, but it's nuclear DNA is decidedly Neanderthal. Heidelberg entered Europe around 600,000 years ago and assimilated Antecessor, a sister species of "early Denisovan," and drove the earlier mtDNA haplogroups there to extinction.
Neanderthal/ Denisovan mtdna split off from our own about 840000 years ago, and then split into Neanderthal and Denisovan respectively about 640,000 years ago, suggesting a period of isolation of 200 thousand years, probably somewhere in Central Asia, which is inhabited intermittently during this period depending on glaciation and climate. It is also likely that a population from this group made its way into Pakistan and India during this time, or was already there to begin with, judging from the similarity of Neanderthal and western S. Asian lithics and the current distribution of neanderthal genes in modern humans.
Rather than saying that neanderthals and the larger part of denisovans broke away from Hss 840,000 years ago, it may be more useful to say that we broke away from them it, and lived in an area that encompassed North and East Africa and South West Asia as our siblings spread out across the world.
700000 years ago yet another population Branch out from our own, heading West and South into greater Africa. It is likely that this subspecies of Heidelberg assimilated the aforementioned African archaic that had been living there since 1.3 million years ago, as introgression from the group in pygmies often contains these older genes as well.
600,000 years ago another group split off from Heidelberg, heading East. Their genes are now only found at low levels in the Andaman islanders. The appearance of "pygmy heidelbergs" in northern India around 150,000 years ago may herald their arrival.
400000 years ago one group of Heidelberg left our gene pool and migrated into Subsaharan or West Africa and is represented by the later introgressed Y Haplogroup A00, which is today only found in a handful of people with ancestry from that region. It is separated by 200 thousand years from the haplogroups of the rest of modern man, suggesting 200 thousand years of haplogroup extinctions from which only two haplogroups among millions survived. Shortly after the divergence of this haplogroup, the tallest examples of Classic Heidelberg appear in Africa in the form of Rhodesian Man and Homo Sapiens Idaltu. Some populations are thought to have averaged 7 foot among males. African Ergaster happens to be the tallest member of the Genus Homo before African Heidelbergs such as Rhodesian man and Idaltu (all are 6'1+), while non-African Heidelbergs are the same height as the erectus that went before them (Antecessor and Los huesos are 6', all other non-African Erectus and "Heidelberg" range between 3' and 5'10, with 5'10 being an extreme rather than a population average). In evolutionary thought, it is considered easier to shrink than to grow, although I would guess that environment, gene exchange, and circumstance might also have something to do with it.
The last divergence from our from own direct ancestral population (that we know about) occurred between 250 and 350 thousand years ago and is evidenced in the mtDNA of an anatomically modern human dated 40-60 thousand years ago in Australia known as Mungo Man.
Anatomically humans show up in the fossil record until 160,000 years ago, and they are all in Africa, which might seem to contradict the DNA. Research agree that though they were both homo Sapien sapiens, neither our Mito eve nor that of Mungo Man were likely anatomically modern. Some hold that anatomically modern Homo Sapien Sapiens don't actually appear until around 120,000 years ago or later. How can it be that two seperate gene pools that were not anatomically modern to begin with both become anatomically modern by 45000 years ago? For that matter, since Y Haplogroup A00 split off from our own 400,000 years ago, when Homo Sapien Sapiens wasn't even around, how can A00 people living today be anatomically modern?
The answer is interbreding between the groups. According to john Hawks and the bBC program first Peoples, Anatomically modern humans formed from genetic interchange between several different groups of heidelbergensis. We know this because different groups of Archaic Humans living in or near Africa from 350 thousand to 90 thousand years ago have different pieces of the puzzle that coalesced to creat anatomically modern human morphology. The group that included the artist formerly known as Y DNA Adam, the group that contained Y Haplogroup A00, the group that contained Mitochondrial Eve, and the group that contained LM3 eve were all subgroups of Heidelberg, with different traits, and they came together to form the traits inherent in every living person today. Y Adam and Mito Eve just won the lineage marker part of the genome, there is no reason to believe that other groups didn't win other parts. Any introgression from the LM3 or A00 populations that happened before anatomically modern human came to be would not be seen as introgression, because everybody on Earth has them today. Too, unlike introgression from neanderthals and Denisovans, nuclear material from the A00 and LM3 populations would only be separated from our own nuclear material by a couple of hundred thousand years or less, and equidistant from that of Neanderthals and Denisovans, so there is even the possibility of introgression after the time in which they coelesced into AMH. We even have evidence for that in the form of a erroneous insert into 39% of modern human's own chromosome 11 that looks just like mtDNA from LM3's Eve. If not for this insert, scientists would not know that our own ancestors even bred with our Pacific sister species, leaving the possibility that there were still other extinct populations of Homo sapien sapiens and AMH that bred with us but remain undetected.
It is even a possibility that all of our Archaic Introgression stems from these "Ghost Population" having assimilated neanderthals, denisovans, and others before we assimilated them in turn.
The extreme of this is that all members of the Genus Homo should be considered Homo sapien sapiens, but because there was likely limited fertility between some of these groups and because there is cause for separation on anatomical grounds, not to mention the unlikelyhood that a modern human could successfully mate with a cloned Homo Habilis, I tend to disagree with this preference. However the various species and subspecies of the genus homo world without a doubt a part of an extended gene pool promise augmented and recombined many times over the past 3.5 million years.
90,000 years ago, LM3 may even still been a part of our own gene pool, and A00's population may not have yet recombined with it yet.
That's when a cold spell started pushing neanderthals into the Middle East and split our population into at least two parts. LM3 and possibly several Y and mtDNA haplogroups that survived into the present (Y Hap C and mtDNA M?) survived in South China where there is presence is known from 120,000 years ago, while the descendents of mito Eve (us) were limited to Africa. In a territory from Africa to Pakistan, and maybe into India, Neanderthal ruled and assimilated the AMH and Heidelberg remained in the region for the next 50 thousand years. we have evidence of this in not only the fossil record but from the introgressed genes of homo sapien sapiens found in the fossils of this self-same group of neanderthals, and their introgression into us.
This same cold spell may have opened up the land bridge to the Andaman Islands for the Early Heidelberg that is Andamanese Archaic Introgression. This subgroup of Heidelberg branched off from our own ancestors 600,000 years ago. By 150,000 years ago, a "pygmy" form of Heidelberg shows up in Northern India and lives for the next 30 thousand years or more alongside a taller but more gracile subgroup that had lived there for at least 600,000 years before. Their size and certain anatomical traits are almost identical to Andaman Islanders. Andaman islander Introgression may even be a combination of these two people's genes, with the 600,000 year old fossils, tools and introgressed genes being the taller Heidelbergs and the 150,000 year old tools and fossils being the Neanderthal Introgression in Andaman Islanders. It may also be that this group included women of the LM3 haplogroup, or a ghost population of Hss that carried the LM3 insert, because Andaman Islanders have it too. It could even have included  Y Haplogroup C and D and mtDNA M, but this is doubtful, and here is the reason: introgression is only a fraction of Andaman Islander DNA. The vast majority of it is from the Homo Sapien Sapiens genome, and their maternal and paternal haplogroups are from within the even more finite branches of Y haplogroup A and mtDNA Eve.  More importantly, they have all of the "updates" that make us human, unlike Indian Pygmy Heidelberg/Neanderthal or any Hominid that branched off from us 600,000 years ago would have. The dates just don't compute- C,D, and M are only around 60 thousand years old. their age would have to be multiplied by three to comply with the dates of the first pygmy Heidelberg's arrival in Northern India! Furthermore, the Andaman islanders are thought to have obtained their 600,000 year old genes only 35,000 years ago, and their Neanderthal genes not long before....and certainly not over 125,000 years before.
But what if the original population from which Andaman Islanders received their introgression was part Hss in the first place? What if in addition to neanderthal and 600,000 year old "Heidelberg genes" it also contained an equal or greater portion of genes from LM3 or Mito Eve? What if it contained Y Haplogroup A0? What if the shared cultural and physical traits of South East Asian Negritos and African pigmy's, such as steatopygia and the similarities between the two groups in cranial morphology as reported in the last study on the subject conducted in 1973.
What if the biggest difference between the negritos and pygmies and ourselves isn't the amount of neanderthal Introgression or admixture from 600,000 and 700,000 year old early heidelbergs. Maybe it's that they were never fully assimilated by the taller group of Homo Sapien sapiens who that once shared an enviroment with in the original homeland of Homo Sapien Sapiens, two populations enjoying two different niches and occasionally exchanging genes, until the Neanderthals drove both of us out.
It may even be that Y haps C and D and mtDNA M in Andaman Islanders comes from a handful of shipwrecked sailors who entered the gene pool sometime between 35,000 and 10,000 years ago.
More likely, however, is that they a group of Heidelberg/Neanderthal/Hss pygmies lived in Northern India, Southern China, and Indochina from 150,000 years ago to at least 45,000 years ago and shared the landscape and sometimes exchanged genes with a taller hybrid of heidelberg/ Hss hybrid that had experienced less introgression from Neanderthals. I say this because the taller specimens linked to Hss from this time and era are more gracile, and because the probable descendant Mungo Man is hyper-gracile and has supposedly less neanderthal introgression than other Hss specimens outside of Africa from a similar date.
An interesting sidenote is that Hss from both Japan and Australia during this period exhibit the practice of tooth knocking. The Japanese Hss have large denisovan like teeth and are Hyper-Robust like Denisovans and they are short and robust like the Indian Heidelberg pygmies, but the Australians are tall and lean. I suspect that the practice may have resulted from a problem with tooth development during adolescence in hybrids of the two groups, or in hybrids of the two groups and neanderthals or Asian hominids. The practice continued in Japan until the Neolithic Jomon Period, in Australia into the present, and back-migrated into Africa about 20,000 years ago within the late Aterian or Ibero-Maurusian cultures, possibly with Y Haplogroup DE and MtDNA M.
So it looks like we had two groups of Homo sapiens sapiens living in an area africa to indochina from around 150,000 years ago to 90,000 years ago. One exploded plains, savannas, and grasslands and was tall and gracile. The other exploited forests and was short and stocky. Ice sheets and Neanderthals kept them out of Europe and Central Asia and something kept them out of most of India, likely something closely related to neanderthals judging my the Mousterian tools found there. Something was also keeping both groups of Hss out of Sub-Saharan and West Africa, where A00 and Archaic African Introgression were waiting to be assimilated by people living there today. Indeed, archaic fossils persists in west Africa until 10,000 years ago.

A cold spell drove the Neanderthals into SW Asia and the Middle East, and separated the genome of LM3 and Negritos from the genome of Mito Eve and Pygmies. Before 90000 years ago, a few fossils of Homo Sapien sapiens in East Africa, China, and the Levant exhibit chins. After 90000 years ago, chins begin to pop up all over Africa and in Southern Neanderthals too. Some African examples dated between 70 thousand and 90 thousand years ago were considered neanderthals until the 1980s, when they were reassigned the Homo Sapien Sapiens classification due to a number of modern features. It looks for all the world like Neandertha/Hss hybrids from the borders of Africa and SW Asia are beginning an assimilation of the entire continent. The dates match up much well with the back-migration of Y Haplogroup BT, and with a second wave of DE and/or its offspring, basal y haplogroup E. The only Africans who seem to have escaped this assimilation are the pygmies, who likely had higher Malaria immunity due to their archaic introgression, and those who mixed with a population of Heidelbergs that contained A00. Both happened in Subsaharan or West Africa during the Upper Pleolithic, probably around 37,000 years ago.
Today, back-migrated Y haplogroup E makes up over 70% of men native to Africa and the vast majority of Africans outside of Subsaharan Africa possess neanderthal introgression. It is mainly only pygmies who have managed to avoid it, and they have introgression that likely serves them far better than a cold-bred hominid's would.

From 70000 years ago to about 45,000 years ago the Y Hap DE neanderthal/Hss hybrid males dominated most of SW Asia, Northern and Eastern Africa, and the Middle East. Their original mtDNA counterpart was likely N, but they also picked up some mtDNA M, possible from the North Indian Pygmies. Sometime around 20,000 years ago a group of them brought tooth-knocking and mtDNA haplogroup M into Africa, and at some point around this same time one of their groups reached the Andaman Islands carrying the assimilated genes of proto-negritos.
This may have been the result of the population in which de was dominant being split in half, as the genome of homo sapiens sapiens had been split in half by neanderthals before. The reason for this was either the emptying of Central asia and the middle East due to climactic conditions or the incursion of another hybrid group from India, the one that contained Y haplogroup FC.
The dispersal of Y Haplogroup C, probably from South Asia, begins around 60,000 years ago and continues into Eurasia and South east Asia. The dispersal of F begins about 45,000 years ago and does the same. My best guess is that C represents those South Asian Hss that bred with the short woodland Neanderthals of South Asia and that F represents those who bred with the taller neanderthals of South Asia. Hybrid vigor allowed both groups' expansions into larger India, assimilating the early neanderthals there who had already mixed with an incursion Microcephalin D hominids that were expanding in the wake of lower sea levels from South east Asia. This is why the Microcephalin D gene is most prevalent in populations dominated by F haplogroups and mostly absent in African and Asian groups dominated by E and D, the offspring of Y haplogroup DE. Assimilation of the 3 million year divergent Homo Varana probably didn't happen until 21 thousand years ago at the last glacial maximum, when Adam's bridge to Sri Lanka became dry again. The resulting hybrids are known as Balangoda man, and some of them seemed to have moved to SW of India itself where they live to this day.
The push of F and C into central Asia pushed neanderthal East and West, and in the the East they began assimilating their sister species Denisovan, who had already begun assimilating Early Homo some 300 thousand years before. Neanderthal like skulls have been found in Mongolia and near Biejing with neanderthal and other archaic features with dates as late as 9000 B.C. The Red Deer Cave people possess triats from Erectus, neanderthal, and Hss...along with a few that only they can boast. Neanderthal stone balls, previously only found in Europe, show up around 40 thousand years ago in China and continue into South East Asia no later than 27,000 years ago. This is why Northern Chinese, native Amnericans. and Papuans have more Neanderthal DNA than most Europeans: Neanderthal assimilated most of the Denisovan and the Microcephalin D populations before we got there, along with much of the genome of our Mungo Man brother LM3.
It also seems that neanderthals and other hominids liked our females better than their own, as their is evidence for Hss introgression into Neanderthals in some Asian specimens and our mtDNA haplogroups seem to preceed us into certain areas, such as Tibet and Europe, long before any of our surviving Y haplogroups get there. When we took the world back from Neanderthal, we must not have killed the women, or at least we didn't kill the women who looked like us.
But why would all of these  dominant neanderthal hybrids who took over the world except for african pygmies always be from an Hss haplogroup rather than a neanderthal one?  It may have something to do with mammal pattern infertility. In mammalian hybrids, the females are more likely to be fertile than the males. The lack of neanderthal genital introgression makes it probable that hybrids who inherited the blackneanderthal reproductive genes rather than their Hss parent's were less successful in producing offspring. The other genes missing from the Neanderthal genome in modern introgression have to do with eyesight and may have been a factor in the size of the occipital bun, which could result in birth complications. if Neanderthals were Blood Type O Negative as is supposed, it may be that they could only have one child with an Hss wiothout the aid of modern medicine. It might also be because homo Sapien sapiens was the first hominid that did not need to go into heat in order to procreate. This could explain other subgroups choosing Hss women over their own and the rapid expansion of Hss genes after the Toba catastrophe. We simply outbred them. It could also be that Hss has a more neonatal look than any hominid that preceded it. We were originally pygmies that were just too cute to kill, and our women were smoking hot!
