Staring into the gloom I imagine the caves ancient inhabitants wrapped in bear skins huddled near a fire The haunches of a reindeer roast in the fire A mother nurses her infant Children playfully throw pieces of bone into the flames An old woman tends the wounds of a hunter with an herbal ointment The strong smells of smoke unwashed bodies and rotting carcasses thicken the air Until recently nobody would have assumed that the above passage Rick Gore pp6 was about how the Neandertals lived However recent studies have shown that Neandertals are smarter than we first thought The geography of the Neandertals domain was quite odd 230000 years ago Europe was filled with caves marshes and grasslands It was a very harsh and cold wilderness The Neandertals were in existence right in the middle of the Ice Age and although occasional warm periods would create subtropical conditions as far north as England for thousands of years the glaciers would always return and the Neandertals would always be forced south again The Neandertals could be found as far north as England and as far south as Spain from Gibralter to Uzbekistan Neandertal bones have been found in the Neander Valley and Dusseldorf Germany in Altamura Italy and Vindija Croatia These are major sites for the European caves the Neandertals lived in Although the Neandertals went to the southern tip of Italy they never crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Africa They migrated from central Europe to central Asia to the Middle East and always came back Their main mode of moving around was on their feet and they usually travelled in bands of no more than 30 people The Neandertals had broad noses
