    • The Real Neanderthal Man

      When people use the word “neanderthal” it is usually in the context of trying to demean someone as the word means a dim-witted and backward human being. But the truth of the matter is that the real Neanderthal was hardly uncultured and stupid. Research and studies based on a fossil that was found in Düsseldorf in the mid-1800s revealed that while the Neanderthals lived 42,000 years ago, they were quite advanced and learned. They were able to make tools and their own clothes, much like craftsmen and engineers. And they taught their young, which was like the early days of homeschooling.

      This documentary attempts to recreate the prehistoric era when Neaderthals exisited, using the latest in computer animation. The idea is to understand how they lived and coped with the world that was changing. What we discover from watching this film may give us more insights into our own ways and lifestyle and connect this with our past and history as a human race.

      What did they found from the DNA? The documentary was not very specific.

      From another documentary… I don't remember the title, nor if I saw this one in French…
      It seemed that : "Neanderthal DNA was found in samples from the current human population."

      But, the conclusion in that doc seemed "overly optimistic" from my end, so I just Googled and… :

      "No mitochondrial DNA sequences from Neanderthals have been encountered in modern humans.” This makes it less likely that there was some genetic interchange with Neandertals,” Green says."
      I just read this at
      http://www.ucsf.edu/science-cafe/articles/neanderthal-dna-and-modern-humans/

      But, both species did meet, there's very little doubt about that. If research still goes on, the final conclusion might differ… again.

      Thanks,imagine different human species living along side homo sapiens today.

      bone isotope levels like that of WOLVES
      hehe
      (determine diet)
      apart from that a very human representation of the neanderthals

      dont believe the neanderthals had blondes tho, that's like blue eyes, a very rare gene which came from just one (homo sapiens) woman

      its actually a miracle there are still blondes or ppl with blue eyes, as they shud have been pretty much extinct by now

      in one or two hunderd yrs they will be anyway

      I have a degree in Anth. and it has been determined that Neanderthals had limited speech as thier vocal tract was not as developed as ours. they had a smaller larnyx making it imposible to produce complex speech patterns!
      Good doc though, early humans are fascinating.

      Not sure why Neanderthals are portrayed here is being intelligent when they were cannibalistic and scavengers. They were more like a red Yeti. There was no speech. All this is very silly and false. What is so wrong with portraying neanderthals as they really were, instead of making up this lie. They also raped and ate the homo sapiens during that time, and had off spring.
