Article reads: Using modern human DNA, Hammer says, they were able to “simulate history” and sort of reverse-engineer human DNA. In doing so, they found evidence that homo sapiens not only had sex with Neanderthals, they also interbred with homo erectus, the “upright walking man,” homo hobilis, the “tool-using man,” and possibly others.
