(Persia Digest) - Professor at Cambridge University and head of the archaeological excavation site of Baveh Yevan has said: “Studies in Baveh Yevan, Kermanshah, western Iran, have revealed that this site was a common settlement shared by Homosapiens and Neanderthals. This is a first find of its kind in the world, showing a common settlement between the two human species.”
Saman Heidari-Gouran added: “Mixing and kinship between Homosapiens and Neanderthals is very probable. Proving this would be a huge discovery.”
The archaeologist added: “The Neanderthals were completely European people whose gene did not spread to Africa. Only a very few examples were discovered in Egypt and Morocco a few years ago. These people became extinct 39-41 thousand years ago.”
The first signs of the early Neanderthals were found in Europe 130 to 230 thousand years ago. Research shows that they spread eastward little by little.
