Product Description

Review

Fresh and engaging --The Bookseller

The first complete chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction ... archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and science historian Michael Morse have shaped a gem ... a beautifully synthesized portrait of a powerful people. --Nature

an engaging, informative, at times even amusing, account of 'our first cousins' --Minerva

Beautifully produced and in a smart slipcase, this book will make you want to abandon your Kindle. --Minerva

Palaeoanthropology has become a rapidly changing field over the past few years, with new discoveries deepening the complexity of our picture of our stone age past, and the refinement of genetics testing throwing new and surprising light even on old discoveries. Bringing the latest debates and discussions to publication, The Neanderthals Rediscovered a great up-to-date resource for the already interested reader, and takes the approach of re-examining the Neanderthals with the focus firmly on the species, rather than focusing simply on Homo sapiens and Neanderthals’ interactions with us. For the general reader however, I’d recommend this too. The authors clearly explain any technical terms and concepts for the newcomer, and the text reads fairly smoothly – in other words, it’s not too dry and academic. Perhaps the best point for newcomers is that the authors take care to dispel the myriad of myths and half-truths that have built up in the public consciousness around Neanderthals since their discovery in 1829.

All in all, a solid read, and more enjoyable and entertaining than many other non-fiction texts on the same subject.

A good book, would have liked more on genetics and their relations with ourselves and other hominids. An easy read, little previous knowledge required.

An overview for the general reader (I am one), but I feel that in the subject there is a "poetry", a sense of awe, that's missing here. And the text feels somewhat "sparse". For all that, an instructive general introduction.
