Caption

Neanderthal man. Reconstructed model of a neanderthal man, Homo neanderthalensis. Compared to modern humans, neanderthals were more heavily- muscled, with relatively long bodies and short legs. Their skulls were longer, lower and more thick-boned than those of modern humans, and featured a thick brow. The skull housed a brain which was as large or larger than modern humans. Neanderthals lived a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and remains of their bodies and stone tools have been found in Europe and Asia. They lived from about 120,000 years ago to 30,000 years ago, a period which included Ice Ages.
