The researchers were able to reconstruct our human ancestor's face with DNA found in the pinky bone of a 13-year-old girl who died tens of thousands of years ago.
Known as a Denisovan, the girl was a member of a species of ancient human that is similar to the Neanderthals.
"This is the first time that we provide a detailed anatomical reconstruction showing us what these humans looked like," said Hebrew University genetics professor Liran Carmel.
According to scientists, Denisovan DNA is believed to have helped modern-day Tibetans live at high altitudes as well as contributed to the Inuits' abilities to withstand shockingly cold temperatures.
