    Summary:
    An international research team led by scientists from McMaster University has unearthed new evidence in Greece proving that the island of Naxos was inhabited by Neanderthals and earlier humans at least 200,000 years ago, tens of thousands of years earlier than previously believed.

    Yes I saw this when it first came out. Sadly they make the pre-suppositional error of excluding Neanderthals from the species "human". Neanderthals and Denisovans were just different varieties of HUMAN. The accepted narrative (made up story to support what they already believed) was that the variety of human that rose up in Africa 195,000 years ago were the only "humans" and Neanderthals were another species of hominid. This was pushed using the Goebbels principle to support the "evolved from apes alongside chimps" mantra (had to maintain the "ancestor of the gaps" assumption). In truth at 200,000 years ago (and before this) when the variety based on the Ethiopian OMO people migrated out they met many other humans who were already there fpr 100s of 1000s of years.

    Their's nothing in this that says Neanderthals weren't human, in fact is says the absolute opposite.
