Caption: Neanderthal man. Artwork of a neanderthal man, Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, holding a stone tool. Neanderthals were early humans who lived in Europe and the Middle East from 100,000 to 30,000 years ago. The name neanderthal comes from the Neander valley, where one of the earliest skulls was found. Compared to modern humans, neanderthals had a relatively large face with a sloping forehead, brow ridge and no chin. Neanderthal man would often fashion tools, such as the one shown in the image out of hard stones such as flint. The tools were used to make weapons, skin animals, make carvings and construct huts.
