He wonders whether DNA from other early humans from Europe will also show signs of encounters with Neanderthals.A 45,000-year-old human from western Siberia — whose genome was sequenced by Reich’s team last year — could belong to this wave. We know that humans and Neanderthals had sex in Europe — but many scientists are eager to know if the two species swapped ideas, as well.Hublin and others have proposed, for instance, that Neanderthals borrowed stone-tool technology and ritual practices from humans, explaining the discoveries of ‘symbolic’ artefacts such as shell beads — which do not have obvious practical uses — at some late Neanderthal sites.German and Swedish eagerness to welcome so many refugees has gradually been worn down.Now the events of New Year’s Eve in Cologne and other German cities may have buried it for good.
