Ancient people with mysterious anomalies are found


Anthropologists of the University of Washington have found out that among remains of the people living in a pleistocene the large number of those who had anomalies of development is observed. It is reported in the press release on Phys.org. The era of a pleistocene covers time from 2,6 to 11 700 thousand years ago. During this period anatomic modern people have appeared in Africa and have gone out of this continent, developing new territories. According to the researcher Erik Trinkaus, in the same time Homo sapiens and other types of the sort Homo often had anomalies of development. The scientist has analysed 66 fossils of ancient people, the age of the majority of which reached 200 thousand years. He has noticed unusually large number of anatomic deviations, including a curvature of bones of hands and legs and also deformations of a skull and jaws. In total 75 anomalies were revealed, at the same time two thirds are observed less than at one percent of the living people now. It indicates that malformations were more widespread in the past, than now. Trinkaus has suggested that anomalies arose more often because of wide circulation of inbreeding when close relatives were with each other crossed.
