Last quote about Neanderthals

James Cole
There has been much recent interest in how cooking can increase the caloric value retrieved from meat. However, given the nature of this study, it was not possible to conduct analyses on cooked human flesh. We know that modern humans have a range of complex motivations for cannibalism that extend from ritual, aggressive, and survival to dietary reasons. Why then would a hominin species such as the Neanderthals, who seem to have had varying attitudes to the burial and treatment of their dead not have an equally complex attitude towards cannibalism?feedback

Keith Dobney

We can really start to mine this amazing record of our joint evolutionary history with these key microorganisms that are basically part of our lives and keep us alive.feedback

Keith Dobney

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.feedback

Philipp Gunz

Certainly look like what many paleoanthropologists (myself included) imagine the Denisovans to look like. Unfortunately, however, it is not possible to infer skull morphology from ancient DNA directly. I therefore hope that future studies will be able to extract ancient DNA from these or similar specimens.feedback

Eastern Asian late archaic humans have been interpreted to resemble their Neanderthal contemporaries to some degree.feedback

Yet it is only with the discovery of two human crania, that the nature of these eastern Eurasian early Late Pleistocene archaic humans is becoming clear.feedback

Katerina Harvati

It is a very exciting discovery. Especially because the human fossil record from East Asia has been not only fragmentary but also difficult to date. This would be the combination that one would expect based on the ancient DNA analysis of Denisovans, who were closely related to Neanderthals.feedback

Jacques Jaubert

The origin of the structures is undeniably human. It really cannot be otherwise.feedback

Jacques Jaubert

The find is solid, and it is an important documentation of the advanced behaviors of the Neanderthals. This requires the mobilization of people who choose, who lead, who advise, manufacture–and with continuous light. All this indicates a structured society.feedback

Juan Luis Arsuaga

It allows us to better understand how the evolution of the Neanderthals occurred, the characteristics of our species, the relationship between different species and the evolutionary lineages in these chronologies, close to half a million years ago.feedback

Irene Eckstrand

The story of early human evolution is captivating in itself, yet it also has far-reaching implications for understanding the organization of the modern human genome.feedback

Sriram Sankararaman

But we can't tell if the Neanderthal alleles are contributing to disease.feedback

Joshua Akey

The 2 percent of your Neanderthal DNA might be different than my 2 percent of Neanderthal DNA, and it's found at different places in the genome.feedback

Juan Luis Arsuaga

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.feedback

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.feedback
