Caption

The Neanderthal man was not the stupid ruffian that he was long supposed to have been. The use of complex tools for hunting and for leather work as well as ornamental artefacts and grave goods do show that there was a Neanderthal culture.

As a biologist I found it very interesting to learn that a small but significant portion of Neanderthal DNA admixture is present in modern non-African populations. So where has the Neanderthal man gone? At least some of his DNA has survived in the cells of all non-Africans among us.

During my last visit to the Museum in Neander valley I shot this panorama that somehow reminded me of the results of the Neanderthal genome project. The gentleman to the left is a model of a Neanderthal man. The gentleman to the right I was not introduced to.
