DENISOVAN ORIGINS
Hybrid Humans, Göbekli Tepe, and the Genesis of the Giants of Ancient America
Andrew Collins

Reveals the profound influence of the Denisovans and their hybrid descendants upon the flowering of human civilization around the world.

Traces the migrations of the sophisticated Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations more than 40,000 years ago.

Shows how Denisovan hybrids became the elite of ancient societies, including the Adena mound-building culture.

Explores the Denisovans' extraordinary advances, including precision-machined stone tools and jewellery, tailored clothing and celestially-aligned architecture Ice-age cave artists, the builders at Göbekli Tepe and the mound-builders of North America all share a common ancestry in the Solutreans, Neanderthal-human hybrids of immense sophistication, who dominated southwest Europe before reaching North America 20,000 years ago.

Yet, even before the Solutreans, the American continent was home to a powerful population of enormous stature, giants remembered in Native American legend as the Thunder People. New research shows they were hybrid descendants of an extinct human group known as the Denisovans, whose existence has now been confirmed from fossil remains found in a cave in the Altai region of Siberia. Tracing the migrations of the Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations in Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Americas, Andrew Collins and Greg Little explore how the new mental capabilities of the Denisovan-Neanderthal and Denisovan-human hybrids greatly accelerated the flowering of human civilization over 40,000 years ago.
