Panels and artifacts in the Neanderthal exhibit continue to shed a different view of the species.
A video display was on rotation, examining a site in France.
Here are images from the video.
The realization that Neanderthals buried their dead started a shift in thinking.
Were they artists?
A different take on the Neanderthal is displayed here with a cranium. Less of a brute and more of a person.
William - the more time goes by, the more we learn! Fascinating!ReplyDelete
Interesting. With the standard of science growing I am curious what they´ll find out over time.ReplyDelete
We have quite a lot of these museums here. I tried to find a post I wrote but couldn't about the "man of Spy" who was discovered not so long ago and they rebuilt him as he was ! Looked like us today and not at all as we imagined a Neandertaler !ReplyDelete
I appreciate the archaeological work.ReplyDelete
Estou a gostar desta exposição.ReplyDelete
Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

Great to see we are still learning more about the Neanderthals.ReplyDelete
I had no idea they buried their dead. JanisReplyDelete
I am quite sure those Neanderthals were more intelligent, perhaps appreciably so, than some politicians on the world stage today.ReplyDelete
...amen to David's comment!ReplyDelete
I've seen the display, but of course, I forget much, so it's nice to revisit.ReplyDelete
Hello, it is great to learn more about the Neanderthals, nice exhibit.ReplyDelete
Wishing you a happy day and a great weekend ahead!
I would really enjoy this...I always thought it would be neat to be an archeologist...maybe when I grow up 😉ReplyDelete
Fascinating, learning how the thinking about the species has evolved.ReplyDelete
Thanks to the archaeologists and their work that we are able to learn so much about the Neanderthals. Interesting exhibits.ReplyDelete
A fabulous exhibit!ReplyDelete
There is so much yet to learn.ReplyDelete
The more we see exhibits like these, the more we learn.ReplyDelete
Interesting exhibits! There is a lot I don't know about them.ReplyDelete
It is intriguing that if, thinking here via DNA, homo sapiens began as one, then where did the Neanderthals begin.ReplyDelete
@Angie: quite true.ReplyDelete
@Iris: more and more.
@Gattina: perhaps like the fellow in my second last shot.
@Ella: I do as well.
@Jan: that it is.
@Janis: you learn new things.
@David: that's of no doubt.
@Tom: it fits the occasion.
@Anvilcloud: I was glad to see it.
@Eileen: thank you.
@RedPat: that it is.
@Sharon: very much so.
@Marie: that it was.
@Bill: that's true.
@Tamago: I was fascinated.
@Maywyn: a common root, but we're close enough that we were able to interbreed.
Hi, William. I sent you an email the other day; wondering if you received it. This looks like an interesting exhibit...reminds me I should do DNA testing...ReplyDelete
Exhibits like these are so interesting to see and learn how we evolved.ReplyDelete
It makes the mind even more curious.ReplyDelete
A lot to learn…ReplyDelete
Unique and something to think about ~ReplyDelete

A lot easier on the eyes and thoughtsReplyDelete
I think it enhances the brain to see both languages all the time!ReplyDelete
… and we are still learning more about the Neanderthals! That's good!ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
I feel that we know so little about the past, this is proving that we had things wrong about the Neanderthal's in the past, I know I was not taught anything like this about them.ReplyDelete
The guy in the first picture looks like my eye doctor.ReplyDelete
It's interesting to see what more we can learn as time goes on!ReplyDelete
@Pat: hopefully I replied back to you when I was doing the email clean out. At the time of this post, I was ignoring that email account.ReplyDelete
@Catalyst: it does.
@Kay: I think so.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: I agree.
@Jan: it is, yes.
@Gemel: we certainly had to correct our thinking.
@Jenn: I agree.
