But the elusive Denisovans left almost no fossil record—only that bit of bone and a handful of teeth—and they came from a site that was notoriously difficult to date.
Now, state-of-the-art DNA analysis on the Denisovan molars and new dates on cave material show that Denisovans occupied the cave surprisingly early and came back repeatedly.
These contestants, from varied walks of life, will attempt to battle the elements and each other in a quest to survive the harsh winter and claim a large cash prize.
What is initially met with unbridled enthusiasm quickly turns to sheer panic as a series of strange events begin to occur.
This is not a "reality show", this is a show that has part of it's plot set up as a reality show.
Researchers sequenced nuclear DNA from three molars from layer 11 and a child’s molar from a deeper layer, 22, according to a talk by graduate student Viviane Slon, who works in the lab of paleogeneticist Svante Pääbo at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.
(A dating method considered experimental for caves, thermoluminescence dating, had suggested that layer 22 is 170,000 years old.) Slon and her colleagues managed to analyze a significant amount of nuclear DNA from three teeth that turned out to be Denisovan.
Denisovans occupied Denisova Cave more than once, at least 65,000 years apart.
Neandertals slipped in as well, and modern humans were the last to live there.The contestants soon attribute the occurrences to ruses set up by the producers, even dismissing the death of a fellow contestant as accidental.
