    imaginations to construct how things use to be. The conditions of the fossils let us know the kinds of conditions people/animals lived in. This can be problematic because for example‚ Neanderthal bones and deer bones were mixed together with some of the same marks. An archaeologist could have mixed up the bones and given the Neanderthal a characteristic of life that isn’t accurate to them. This could be the case for any fossil that isn’t easily identifiable and archaeologists have to use their “imaginations

    Michelle Lappegarrd Language of the Neanderthal It is understood that the Neanderthal was an exceptional thinker and communicator; but there are heavy debates that question whether or not it spoke with a language. Some argue that the hyoid bone of the Neanderthal was too high in relation to its larynx to enable its tongue to form words‚ while others argue the opposite. With respect to both theories‚ it was indeed a linguistic hominid. The Neanderthal skull is more similar in shape to the Homo

    The Neanderthals are an extinct species in the homo genus. They lived during the Pleistocene age. The Neanderthals are believed to have lived in most of Eurasia from 120‚000 years ago to about 30‚000 years ago. They were a more advanced pre-modern variation of the homo genus. The reason they are viewed as more advanced than other Pre-modern hominids is because they made tools‚ buried their dead they also lived to around forty years of age. This is quite long compared to their contemporaries. Their

    Since their discovery more than a century ago‚ the Neanderthals have hovered over the minds and have baffled the best-laid theories of paleoanthropologists. They seem to fit in the general scheme of human evolution‚ and yet they’re misfits. (Jurmain‚ Kilgore‚ Trevathan and Ciochon. p.367) In a way they are like us the modern Homo sapiens but yet are a very different species. But the real question that needs to be answered is “why the Neanderthals were considered a different species than the Homo sapiens

    The Teeth size of Neanderthals has given Anthropologists and scientists a plethora of information to what types of foods they ate in the past. Scientists have studied Neanderthals teeth and the dental plaque to discover their past food tastes. It has been shown that food had gotten stuck on the teeth of these cavemen‚ allowing the types of food they ate to be researched and studied. Neanderthals show knowledge and capabilities that have never been thought‚ and may be smarter than given credit.

    A New Understanding of Neanderthals The articles‚ "Hard Times Among the Neanderthals" by Erik Trinkaus‚ and "Rethinking Neanderthals" by Joe Alper offer some insight into the existence of the Neanderthals. The articles suggest that Neanderthals may not have been the "dumb brutes" they were originally assumed to be; instead‚ they illustrate the ways in which Neanderthals were similar to modern humans (Alper‚ 146). Since the discovery of the first Neanderthal fossil remains in the Neander Valley

    Were Neanderthals a distinct species of the Homo Genus‚ or were they a sub-species of the Homo Sapien? Are modern day humans a product of selective breeding or are they distinctive in DNA to just Homo Sapiens or Neanderthals? To figure this out we will go back to an approximate timeline of over 200‚000 years ago in the Pleistocene Epoch‚ where this fossil‚ and possibly kin‚ resided and thrived. As we know and have all come to understand through media interpretation and display‚ the Neanderthal was

    Relationship of Neanderthals to Modern Humans After extracting ancient DNA from the 40‚000-year-old bones of Neanderthals‚ scientists have obtained a draft sequence of the Neanderthal genome‚ yielding important new insights into the evolution of modern humans. No other ancient people have aroused more controversy and confusion over the last century and a half than have the Neanderthals (3‚4). There is an on-going debate as to whether they should be considered Homo sapiens.
