The Neanderthals Rediscovered : How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story, Hardback Book

The Neanderthals Rediscovered : How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story Hardback

Description

For too long the Neanderthals have been seen as dim-witted evolutionary dead-enders who looked and behaved completely differently from us, but in recent years their story has been transformed thanks to new discoveries and advances in scientific techniques.

In a compelling narrative - one that has not previously been told in a way that encompasses the entire dramatic arc from evolution to expansion to extinction - this book takes a fresh and engaging look at the whole story of the Neanderthals, setting out all the evidence, redressing the balance and arriving at a fairer assessment of a species that was closely related to us - and in so doing addresses what it is to be human.
