Abstract

Modern humans overlapped in time and space with other hominins, such as Neanderthals and Denisovans, and limited amounts of hybridization occurred. Here, we review recent work that has identified archaic hominin sequence that survives in modern human genomes and what these genomic excavations reveal about human evolutionary history.
