Caption: Neanderthal family. Artwork of Neanderthals outside Gorham's Cave, Gibraltar, based on evidence discovered at excavation sites here. Like modern humans, Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) are members of the Homo genus. They inhabited Europe and western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. They did not use complex tools but had mastery of fire and built shelters. It is thought that they had language and a complex social structure, living in small family groups and hunting for food.
