Here is a link to Jeremy Norman's History of Communication site, www.historyofinformation.com...
which has a fair amount of information about neanderthal's and their place in human history. Norman's website is so interesting that I did an entire
thread about it.
This thread deserves a place in my "keeper" list, posted on another site (also subscribed here). It has very good data, and aside from the
derailment things going on in the middle, has kept both on track and contains abundant well researched posts and links.
