We develop and test a method to address whether DNA samples sequenced from a group of fossil hominin bone or teeth fragments originate from the same individual or from closely related individuals. Our method assumes low amounts of retrievable DNA, significant levels of sequencing error and contamination from one or more present-day humans. We develop and implement a maximum likelihood method that estimates levels of contamination, sequencing error rates and pairwise relatedness coefficients indoi:10.1101/103903 fatcat:f5hwyr2xxfe27ommv4vycetwva
