“Here we actually hold a skull of a human being that was living next to the Neanderthals,” says Israel Hershkovitz, the leader of a study published today in Nature (I. Hershkovitz et al. Nature http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature14134; 2015).

It would be amazing if they could test this individuals' DNA some day.

They hint so much. Now if the cave, with similar accretions of calcite, hides more bones, of both types of hominins then they can better make their claims of coesistence. But as for the place of origin of admixture between the two species, they overreached.
