Modern humans interbred with Denisovans twice in history.

Quote:
Modern humans co-existed and interbred not only with Neanderthals, but also with another species of archaic humans, the mysterious Denisovans. While developing a new genome-analysis method for comparing whole genomes between modern human and Denisovan populations, researchers unexpectedly discovered two distinct episodes of Denisovan genetic intermixing, or admixing, between the two.
They found some Denisovian DNA in East Asians that is different from the Denisovian DNA found in South Asians and Papuans.

For only society can give or concede it to them; they themselves cannot take it, or give it to themselves.

Finger bone points to early human exodus

Previously, it was theorised that Homo sapiens did not live continuously outside Africa until 60,000 years ago...
