Nesher Ramla Homo

Nesher Ramla Homo is a unique Homo population that dwelled in and around the modern-day Israel from around 420,000 to 120,000 years ago. Its skull was excavated at the Israeli site of Nesher Ramla.

It was found that this skull belonged to an individual who was neither a Homo sapiens nor a Neanderthal. This first-of-its-kind discovery provides a critical link in the evolution of modern humans from Neanderthal. Many of the features were a combination of archaic and Neanderthal features. This discovery reveals inbreeding between different Homo populations and the tool remains in nearby areas signify technology exchange.
