"In the 1st entire chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction...archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and technology historian Michael Morse have formed a gem." ?Nature

in recent times, the typical conception of the Neanderthals has been reworked, because of new discoveries and paradigm-shattering medical techniques. It seems that the Neanderthals’ habit was once strangely smooth: they buried the lifeless, cared for the unwell, hunted huge animals of their top, harvested seafood, and communicated with spoken language. in the meantime, advances in DNA applied sciences are compelling us to re-evaluate the Neanderthals’ position in our personal past.

For millions of years, Neanderthals advanced in Europe parallel to Homo sapiens evolving in Africa, and, whilst either species made their first forays into Asia, the Neanderthals may also have had the higher hand. during this vital quantity, Dimitra Papagianni and Michael A. Morse assemble the 1st complete chronological narrative of the Neanderthals’ dramatic existence?from their evolution in Europe to their enlargement to Siberia, their next extinction, and eventually their revival in well known novels, cartoons, cult video clips, and tv ads. seventy seven illustrations, 20 in colour
