"The Altamura Man is a partially preserved fossil of the genus Homo. The skeleton was first thought to be an example of Homo heidelbergensis and was also described as having characteristics of Homo neanderthalensis. It has more recently been dated to 130,000 years ago and classified as an archaic Homo sapiens with some Neanderthal features. It was found embedded in rock and has been left in situ. It was discovered in October 1993 by speleologists in a limestone cave, the Grotta di Lamalunga, near the city of Altamura, Italy." Source: Wikipedia.
The remains of Altumura Man, thought to have fallen down a sinkhole where he starved to death, have provided some of the oldest DNA evidence ever recovered from hominid fossils. Back in 2015, when the find was still thought to be a Neanderthal, the Archaeology News Network reported that "the early genetic data allow [us] to consider the Altamura skeleton as the most ancient Neanderthal from which portions of genetic material were extracted."
