There are legends of the Alma, a humanoid who ranges from the edge of Siberia to as far south as Kazakhstan and the Caucasus Mountains that lie between the Black and Caspian Seas. The last reliable sighting of one such creature was made by the Russian scientist Alexander Pronin in 1948.
In the 19th century, a female Alma with sandy red hair and a sloping forehead was captured in the Caucasus region. Recent genetic research on remnant Neanderthal DNA concluded they were actually red or sandy haired.
According to the historian Boris Porshney, the female Alma, named Zanya, mothered four surviving children by different men. He reported all the children were said to look similar to normal humans except they were much stronger.
Porshney investigated Zanya’s living descendants and remarked on their unique features, including a robust receding jaw. Although he failed to find her grave, he dug up the remains of her direct offspring and concluded their skeletal structure was more similar to Neanderthals than modern humans.
The legend of the Alma supports the idea the Neanderthal race is not extinct, but still lives in the isolated and inhospitable parts of Eurasia that formed their traditional home territory.
