Keith Dobney, Jacques Jaubert and Dominique Genty, are those who have spoken the most about this topic. Keith Dobney said: “Neanderthals, not surprisingly, are doing different things, exploiting different things, in different places. You would expect if Neanderthals were eating each other, that the quantity of Neanderthal DNA would be a lot higher in [the tartar] – it would be part of the food debris. [That] doesn't appear to be the case. Potentially this is evidence of more sophisticated behaviour in terms of knowledge of medicinal plants. The idea that Neanderthals were a bit simple and just dragging their knuckles around is one that has gone a long time ago, certainly in the anthropological world.”.

This provides insight into how evolution happened to the Neanderthals, the evolution of our species, and the evolutionary relationships between species and lineages almost 1,000 million years ago.

Svante Paabo

We have sequenced 30 mg of bone. What it showed was that there existed a human form 30 – 40 thousand years ago in Siberia – a new human form that we didn't know about before – that is neither related to us nor to the Neanderthals.
