Neanderthal skull and face. Comparison between the skulls of a neanderthal (at left) and modern human (at right). The neanderthal skull, seen with a model face, differs in a number of ways. It has a flattened broad shape, cheekbones swept back, large front teeth and brow ridge above the eyes. The nose was large, the front teeth were probably used as a clamp for skin processing or tool making. Average brain size was over 1400cc, like modern humans. Neanderthals, Homo neanderthal- ensis, were short and thick-set like cold-adapted people. They ranged across Europe from 130,000- 35,000 years ago as hunter-gatherers.
