The Neanderthals: not so different after all?
Tuesday 22 September 2020, 5.00pm to 6.10pm BST
Ever since their discovery over 150 years ago, the Neanderthals have had a bad press! However, mounting evidence including from current excavations in Shanidar Cave (Iraqi Kurdistan) shows them in a very different light. What do these latest findings tell us about the Neanderthals, our closest evolutionary cousins? Why did they go extinct rather than us?
