Re: Neanderthals: weren't they red heads?

Thank you so much for the link! I found the article quite interesting and much more complete than average. It seems that, although the work done was limited to two specimens, these were found at a great remove from each other and both exhibited the same genetic marker, which tends to suggest that th...

Neanderthals: weren't they red heads?

Hi, I thought that genetic and physical evidence had finally filled in for us information on the hair color of Neanderthals and it turned out to be red. However I still see, in this article http://www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/archives/03/2013/refugia-and-ice-age-evolution , Neanderthals depected...

Thank you for your polite reply. I apologize for coming in late on the discussion. Is it your contention that only 1 group/species came out of Africa? For myself, I was interested to see some work that appeared to identify independent tool use among the Neanderthal populations, including some that p...

Re: Stupid (?) Question

I've been watching the Neanderthals issue with great interest these last few years. It seems like it took forever for science to move away from the homo-supremacy model to genuine curiosity.
