Further, whatever the ancestor of birds may be, it has to become a small, arboreal, tree-climbing animal before becoming a bird that is because the earliest known birds such as anchiornis and archaeopteryx are small, arboreal, tree-climbing, 4 winged animals, unlike the much larger bipedal, ground dwelling theropods.

And, remarkably, knowledge of her discovery and existence almost never saw the light of day with exclusive access to the first scientists to study her, the award-winning science writer colin tudge tells the history of ida and her place in the world.
What's more, a study in 2015 found an early modern human dating from 32,000 years ago with a neanderthal ancestor as close as three generations previously, indicating that not only was the interbreeding between early hominid groups widespread but that it also occurred much more recently than one would expect. From these small villages and farming communities grew centralized government the first of which was the prehistoric xia dynasty (c 2070-1600 bce) the xia dynasty was considered, for many years, more myth than fact until excavations in the 1960's and 1970's ce uncovered sites which argued strongly for its existence. Before the sequencing of the first neanderthal genome, an analysis of present-day human samples had indicated there might have been high levels of archaic ancestry in both european and west african genomes, likely stemming from a diverged hominin group.
