Prehistoric girl had parents belonging to different human species

The bone belonged to an ancient human who had a Neanderthal mother and a Denisovan father. 

….The find is either a stunning stroke of luck or a hint that hominins interbred more often than we thought. It may even suggest that extinct groups like Neanderthals did not die out, but were absorbed by our species.
