FenArch – Who are you calling Neanderthal?

The FenArch talk in 28 September will be titled ‘Who are you calling Neanderthal. Renewed investigations at Shanidar Cave, Iraqi Kurdistan’

Neanderthals have frequently suffered from a bad press, but recent interpretations suggest they are much more like us. Shanidar, in Iraq had a series of Neanderthal burials one of which had flowers in it. They were considered the ‘First Flower people’! Renewed work at Shanidar explores Neanderthal behaviour in the light of questions over their ‘humanity.

The talk will be given by Dr Tim Reynolds. The venue will be The Secret Garden, Wisbech St Mary.
