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.

This review is from: The Neanderthals Rediscovered: How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story (Hardcover)
A good book, would have liked more on genetics and their relations with ourselves and other hominids. An easy read, little previous knowledge required.

This review is from: The Neanderthals Rediscovered: How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story (Hardcover)
Demonstrates the humanity of this much maligned people. Alongside the Jean Auel 'Earth's Children' books I feel as if I had known them.
