In a compelling narrative, 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.

Synopsis

The Neanderthals Rediscovered How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story by Dimitra Papagianni, Michael A. Morse

For too long the Neanderthals have been seen as dim-witted evolutionary dead-enders who looked and behaved completely differently from us, but their story has been transformed thanks to new discoveries and advances in scientific techniques. This book takes a look at the whole story of the Neanderthals.
