"In the 1st whole chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction...archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and technological know-how 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 thoughts. It seems that the Neanderthals’ habit was once strangely glossy: they buried the useless, cared for the in poor health, hunted huge animals of their leading, harvested seafood, and communicated with spoken language. in the meantime, advances in DNA applied sciences are compelling us to re-examine the Neanderthals’ position in our personal past.
For millions of years, Neanderthals developed in Europe parallel to Homo sapiens evolving in Africa, and, while either species made their first forays into Asia, the Neanderthals may also have had the higher hand. during this very important quantity, Dimitra Papagianni and Michael A. Morse bring together 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 videos, and tv ads. seventy seven illustrations, 20 in colour
