Neanderthal DNA & the Origins of Modern Man

Neanderthal_manDon't miss this brilliant video presentation and discussion of the implications of ancient Neanderthal DNA by an international team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute.

Neanderthals, who co-existed with modern humans for tens of thousands of years, performed  sophisticated sets of tasks normally associated with humans alone, building complex shelters, controlling fire, conducting ritual burials and skinning animals.

The great mystery is what happened to the Neanderthals as they were displaced by the new Homo sapiens. No signs of slaughter have ever been found, so most authorities believe that new breed of hominids simply out competed their older, duller, less adept predecessors.
