"We are Pope", the title of the Newspapers, as with Pope Benedict XVI, a German, the spiritual head of the Catholic Church. You could Supplement today: "We are the cradle of mankind", at least in Bavaria, more precisely in the Allgäu. There is, in fact, a research team at the University of Tübingen, writes of those days around paleoanthropologist Madelaine Böhme the history of science.
it is a question of four partially intact skeletons, which were excavated between 2015 and 2018 in a clay pit in Pforzen. It is the fossilized Remains of a previously unknown Primate species – a scientific Sensation, which could make the previous evolutionary history of the people on the head.
"Udo" called the researchers, the male specimen of the excavated hominid, according to the German singer Udo Lindenberg. This is celebrated on the day of the discovery of his 70. Birthday, his Songs dudelten from the Radio while the researchers did to create the bones. Soon it was agreed: The skeleton of the newly discovered hominids had to hot Udo. For three years, analyzed various research teams the Remains of Udo and his family.
If he used tools, it is still unclear
Officially, the new Monkey species Danuvius guggenmosi means. It was hominids of about one Meter Growth, which are likely to have fed between the ages of 18 and 31 kilos of the hard parts of plants. They lived 11.6 million years ago in the European forests, moving with long arms, climbing through the treetops, but could also go without the help of the arms, on two legs and about a walk on the forest floor companies.
the Sensation is because of the upright gait was so far the unique feature of modern humans. This should, however, have evolved according to the doctrine, much later, in Africa, when our ancestors began to the trees left, in the Savannah mounted and to use tools.
thanks to the newly discovered type, we know now that it is much earlier and also in Europe species, which walked on two legs, and the hands-free had. However it is still unclear whether Udo also used tools and a culture of performance provided. That would make all previous theories on the phylogeny of the people on the head, the world would have to draw the exact lines of development of our species.
climate change, there was already
Udo is the "Missing Link", the missing link, between man and man monkey not necessarily seen. Rather, he is likely to be an indication for the Thesis that the lines of development of our species were not linear, but there must have been various populations, the dynamically cross-linked and over long periods of time blended and parted again.
So that would also be conceivable, that our African ancestors had their own European relatives who migrated before the seven to nine million years to Africa. The most likely trigger for this movement: a global climate change.
