Ancient Skull may Indicate Humans and Neanderthals Interbred

And after two about archaeology, we need a little news on physical anthropology. A skull--mind you, a single skull--may indicate that humans and neanderthals interbred. Don't get too excited. These sorts of discoveries tend to get sensationalized by the time they make it to news agencies.

Personally, I should think it's almost certain that humans and neanderthals interbred occasionally, assuming they were interfertile.
