The roughly six billion people here on Earth whose current ancestry does not belong to Africa must have inherited between one and two percent of their genome from our closest though now dead ancestors: the Neanderthals.

Neanderthal Teeth Serve as Evidence of Interbred Population

A discovery and study of prehistoric teeth found in 1910 and 1911 suggest that neanderthals and modern humans interbred. The teeth were discovered over 100 years ago at the La Cotte de St. Brelade cave in Jersey, an island on the English channel, a report from Gizmodo states. The teeth, along with fossils and modern genomes, provide sufficient evidence of interbreeding.
