The study suggests that the art may not be the work of modern humans at all. Neanderthals have been portrayed as brutish, animalistic cavemen, but the archaeological evidence suggests they weren't dummies. The Panel of Hands at El Castillo Cave in …

Archaeologists race against time to explore Neanderthal site , University of Southampton archaeologists are working to save important Palaeolithic remains at a rare Neanderthal site, before they are lost to the forces of nature.
Were Neanderthals a sub-species of modern humans? New research says no , In an extensive, multi-institution study led by SUNY Downstate Medical Center, researchers have identified new evidence supporting the growing belief that Neanderthals were a distinct species separate from modern humans (Homo sapiens), and not a subspecies of modern humans.
Weird Life , A genome taken from a 36,000-year-old skeleton has helped scientists shed new light on interbreeding between humans and Neanderthals.
Ancient and Modern Europeans Have Surprising Genetic Connection , There is a surprising genetic unity between the earliest known Europeans and contemporary Europeans, ancient DNA reveals. This finding suggests that a complex network of sexual exchange may have existed across Europe over the past 50,000 years, and also helps to pinpoint when modern humans interbred with Neanderthals, the closest extinct relatives of modern humans, the researchers said.
First Europeans weathered the Ice Age , The international team of scientists also said the DNA from one of the oldest known anatomically modern humans shows that interbreeding with Neanderthals took place some 54,000 years ago, far earlier than previously thought. Researchers from the Centre for GeoGenetics at the University of Copenhagen used DNA from a fossil known as Kostenki 14 for their study, published in the US journal Science ...
Ancient Russian's DNA sheds light on Neanderthal interbreeding , By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - DNA extracted from the skeleton of a man who lived in Russia about 37,000 years ago is giving scientists new insights into the genetic history of Europeans including interbreeding that took place with Neanderthals more than 50,000 years ago. Scientists said on Thursday they used DNA taken from the man's left tibia to sequence the genome of one of the ...
Mysterious Human-Like Species Lived in a 'Lord of Rings-Type World' , Like Us on Facebook The researchers first discovered this unknown group by examining the genome sequences of both Neanderthals and Denisovans. The genomes suggested that interbreeding occurred between several human-like groups in both Europe and Asia more ...
Neanderthals were NOT a sub-species of modern man, scientists claim: Structure of nose hints they were a separate species , confirming previous results that found Neanderthals and the first humans to leave Africa for Europe, briefly interbred. Lead author Dr Eske Willerslev, of the Centre for GeoGenetics at Copenhagen University, said the work reveals a framework with which to ...
