New discoveries show more contact between far-flung prehistoric humans than had been thought

“Two further studies, published in the journal Current Biology, lends support to this controversial hypothesis by discovering genetic links between the native inhabitants of Rapanui – Easter Island – and the indigenous people of South America. This suggests there was contact and interbreeding between the remote Pacific island and the American mainland long before the arrival of the first Europeans.” – Independent.co.uk
