Abstract


  • Ever since the Neandertal (Homo neanderthalensis) type fossil was discovered in the Neander Valley of Germany in 1856, the species has been variously portrayed as knuckle-dragging cavemen and primitive members of the human family tree who became extinct as a result of being more stupid than members of our own species, Homo sapiens.
