Ust’-Ishim man created the Denisova bracelet
Nature 514, 445–449 (23 October 2014): The 45,000 year old Ust’-Ishim genome shares more alleles with non-Africans than with sub-Saharan Africans. When an ~8,000-year-old genome from western Europe (La Braña)9 or a 24,000-year-old genome from Siberia (Mal’ta 1)10 were analysed, there is no evidence that the Ust’-Ishim genome shares more derived alleles with present-day East Asians than with these prehistoric individuals (|Z| < 2). This suggests that the population to which the Ust’-Ishim individual belonged diverged from the ancestors of present-day West Eurasian and East Eurasian populations before—or simultaneously with—their divergence from each other. The finding that the Ust’-Ishim individual is equally closely related to present-day Asians and to 8,000- to 24,000-year-old individuals from western Eurasia, but not to present-day Europeans, is compatible with the hypothesis that present-day Europeans derive some of their ancestry from a population that did not participate in the initial dispersals of modern humans into Europe and Asia.
Peter Klevius comment: This is perfectly in line with a dispersal of the truly modern intelligent human out of Siberia and hybridizing with pre-existing (but dumb) archaic sapiens closer to Africa (on the map below the gray "bastard belt" as Klevius uses to put it). The other extreme (Australia, Papua N-G, Melanesia etc) was the starting point for Denisovan - not the end point as most erroneously still seem to think.
