Interesting that the Russian researchers now feel the bracelet was made by the Denisovans. The article writer got at least part of the story wrong, though; the cave was not named after the ancient people, it was named after a hermit, Denisov, who lived there decades ago, and the bones of ancients found there were named after the cave.

There is a theory that the Denisovans are the descendants of what the Russians call Alma or Almasty.  This line from the article caught my attention:

 

  "Skeletal remains show that the Denisovans were probably far more robust and powerful than modern humans, and were, until now, assumed to be a more primitive, archaic type of humans than us."

 

Not sure how they get that from a finger bone fragment and a few teeth.  The really interesting thing is that significantly more DNA was recovered from these pieces than has been found in any Neanderthal remains.
