How much DNA do we share with Neandertals? The first DNA was recovered from a Neandertal 25 years ago, and since then, ancient DNA has provided many surprising insights into recent human evolutionary history. Among these are the discoveries of the archaic Denisovans, multiple admixture events among late Pleistocene humans, and the remnants of archaic DNA in our own genomes. Anthropological geneticist Anne Stone was part of the team that reported the first Neandertal results and will reflect the findings of the last quarter century of ancient DNA research into archaic humans and their environment.
