Caption: Neanderthals in Gibraltar. Illustration of a group of Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) eating seafood and tending a camp fire by caves in Gibraltar. Neanderthals 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. It is not known why Neanderthals became extinct, but one theory is that they were outcompeted by modern humans (Homo sapiens).
