Neanderthal skeleton. View of the skeleton of a neanderthal (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis). The spine leads up from the pelvis (lower centre), past the arm bones and ribs. At top left the jaw is seen. Neanderthals were early humans that lived in Europe and the Middle East about 120-30,000 years ago. Neanderthals' brains were slightly larger than ours. They fashioned tools with which they made weapons and built dwellings. The first neanderthal skeleton was found in the Neander Valley, Germany. The skeleton was found in Kebara, Israel, and is in a Nordstar exhibition photogra- phed at the Naturkundemuseum, Stuttgart, Germany.
