Response to Comment on “A Middle Pleistocene Homo from Nesher Ramla, Israel”


May, Hila; Sarig, Rachel; Pokhojaev, Ariel; Fornai, Cinzia; Martinón-Torres, María; de Castro, José María Bermúdez; Weber, Gerhard W; Zaidner, Yossi; Hershkovitz, Israel (2021). Response to Comment on “A Middle Pleistocene Homo from Nesher Ramla, Israel”. Science, 374:6572.

Abstract

Marom and Rak claim, on the basis of a few mandibular features, that the Nesher Ramla (NR) Homo is a Neanderthal. Their comments lack substance and contribute little to the debate surrounding the evolution of Middle Pleistocene Homo. Limitations and preconceptions in their study prevented them from achieving resolution beyond a dichotomous interpretation of the NR as either a Neanderthal or a modern human.
