Getting to know the Denisovans

Professor Laura Shackelford's Interview with Evolution Soup

Earlier in the summer, Professor Laura Shackelford of Anthropology received wide media coverage for her discovery in a cave in Laos of remains from the Denisovans, an ancient human group that split from their relatives, the Neanderthals, 400,000 years ago. 

In this interview to Mark Torrender from Evolution Soup, Professor Shackelford describes her background, research, the Denisovans and virtual archaeology.
