There is a new addition to the family tree: an extinct species of human that’s been found in Philippines. It’s known as Homo Luzonensis, after the site of its discovery on the country’s largest island, Luzon.
It’s physical features are a mixture of those found in very ancient human ancestors and in more recent people.
That could mean primitive human relatives left Africa and made it all way to South- East Asia, something not previously thought possible.
The find shows that human evolution in the region may have been a highly complicated affairs, with three or more human species in the region at around the time our ancestors arrived.
