Caption: Neanderthal woman reconstructed from a skull found at Saint Cesaire, France, that dates to 36,000 BC. Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) were relatives of humans that inhabited Europe and western Asia between around 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. They did not use complex tools but had mastery of fire and built shelters. It is not known why they became extinct, but many suspect they were outcompeted by modern humans. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
