On Altai scientists-paleontologists have unearthed the remains of a man who lived here about 50 thousand years ago. Loud discovery made the scientists in the cave with a frightening name “the Terrible”. The study will clarify the theory of anthropogenesis, reports Regnum referring to the press service of the Novosibirsk state University.
