Neanderthal man. Model of a Neanderthal man (Homo neanderthalensis). The Neanderthals were hominids (human relatives) that inhabited Europe and parts of western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. Their stature and features imply that they were adapted for an existence in a cold environment, as would have been the prevailing climate during the Ice Ages. Their brains were around 10 percent larger compared to modern humans, they had a short, robust build and large noses.
