  • 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, 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.

      Without being an authority on ancient humans, I have always been a proponent of Neanderthal culture. They have consistently been depicted as clearly subhuman, both in academic works and in fiction. Now we have an account of the latest research, which credits them with language and with enough culture to bury their dead, decorate their bodies symbolically, and invent new tools. They needed all that, and more, to survive as big-game hunters in Ice Age Europe. The authors also have interesting thin [...]

      I bought Neanderthals Rediscovered to catch up on the progress of Neanderthal studies after decades of neglect.

The Neanderthals are situated in the context of their predecessors and their contemporaries, which eventually included our own "modern" and frequently murderous variety of hominid. The discussion of tools used by Neanderthals and others is particularly good, as is the discussion of [...]

There is a good discussion of th [...]

      I shouldn't be, but I am always amazed by how ideas and interpretations of things, both historical or scientific, change through generations of researchers. (I feel safe in making this statement because I have been reading for at least 60+ years.) This happens not only because of progressive technologies but also from the influences of prevailing cultural viewpoints. The authors of this book have taken both of these stances in hand by describing what is now archeologically relevant to the und [...]

      This is a book about Neanderthals, what is actually known about them, what is not known, what might be reasonably supposed, what has been shown to be erroneously accepted as fact, and what has been wildly imagined about them. It amply rewards a careful reading.
