Neanderthals. Computer artwork of a Homo neanderthalensis man and woman standing in a prehistoric landscape. Like modern humans (Homo sapiens), Neanderthals are members of the Homo genus. They inhabited Europe and western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. It is not known why they became extinct, but one theory is that they were outcompeted by modern humans.
