Radiocarbon dates show that modern people camped in the Châtelperron cave, 25 miles northeast of Vichy, about 40,000 years ago, preceded and then followed by two episodes of Neanderthal occupancy... "We realised that these bones could be used for radiocarbon dating, a process not available when Delporte's excavations were carried out," said Professor Paul Mellars of Cambridge, who with Gravina and the Oxford dating specialist Christopher Bronk Ramsey publishes the evidence in the online edition of Nature today. "They give us the first unambiguous proof that Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans overlapped for at least a thousand years in western Europe."

It's not so hard to believe, my wife shares a house with me.
Sounds gay to me.
Of course they did. It is kind of arrogant of 'scientists' to have come up with a theory to the contrary for all these years. Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans more likely than not also inter 'bred'.
Well my wife still claims there must be more that a few Neanderthal genes perking along inside me.
Whenever some of them surface I get "The Look".

Just updating the GGG info, not sending a general distribution.To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.The Neandertal EnigmaFrayer's own reading of the record reveals a number of overlooked traits that clearly and specifically link the Neandertals to the Cro-Magnons. One such trait is the shape of the opening of the nerve canal in the lower jaw, a spot where dentists often give a pain-blocking injection. In many Neandertal, the upper portion of the opening is covered by a broad bony ridge, a curious feature also carried by a significant number of Cro-Magnons. But none of the alleged 'ancestors of us all' fossils from Africa have it, and it is extremely rare in modern people outside Europe." [pp 126-127]
