“Café Neandertal”

Beebe Bahrami

This is a fascinating look at some particular Neandertal researchers and excavations and at the current state of knowledge about Neandertals. Beebe Bahrami conveys the sense of mystery surrounding these humans who aren’t “us” without straying from scientific facts (and theories). It’s striking how much can be learned from the tiny bits of evidence that survive from thousands of years ago.
