9780500292044: The Neanderthals Rediscovered: How Modern Science Is Rewriting Their Story (Revised and Updated Edition)

"In the first complete chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction...archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and science historian Michael Morse have shaped a gem." ―Nature

In recent years, the common perception of the Neanderthals has been transformed, thanks to new discoveries and paradigm-shattering scientific innovations. It turns out that the Neanderthals’ behavior was surprisingly modern: they buried the dead, cared for the sick, hunted large animals in their prime, harvested seafood, and communicated with spoken language. Meanwhile, advances in DNA technologies are compelling us to reassess the Neanderthals’ place in our own past.

For hundreds of thousands of years, Neanderthals evolved in Europe parallel to Homo sapiens evolving in Africa, and, when both species made their first forays into Asia, the Neanderthals may even have had the upper hand. In this important volume, Dimitra Papagianni and Michael A. Morse compile the first full chronological narrative of the Neanderthals’ dramatic existence―from their evolution in Europe to their expansion to Siberia, their subsequent extinction, and ultimately their revival in popular novels, cartoons, cult movies, and television commercials. 77 illustrations, 20 in color

Review:

In the first complete chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction . . . archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and science historian Michael Morse have shaped a gem. — Nature

Papagianni and Morse explore various aspects of the biology, culture, and demise of the Neanderthals, helping to shed light on many of the myths and controversies . . . that had long surrounded this ancient and enigmatic group. — The Underground Movement

Includes the most up-to-date findings and interpretations presented in the technical literature. . . .  Recommended. — Choice

If you want grounding in our current understanding of our human predecessors, Papagianni, and PhD archaeologist and Morse . . . have written the book for you. . . . Highly recommended. — Library Journal

Readers learn that the common perception of the Neanderthals has been transformed due to new discoveries and paradigm-shattering scientific innovations. — Museum Store Magazine

Focused squarely on the Neanderthals in their own right—how they lived, how they evolved, how they inhabited Europe for at least two hundred millennia. . . . The Neanderthals Rediscovered has the fresh charm of treating human evolution as a curious story that leads to the Neanderthals, rather than as a moral tale that rises ever upward and inevitably to us godlike moderns. — Harper's

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. For too long the Neanderthals have been seen as dim-witted evolutionary dead-enders who looked and behaved completely differently from us, but in recent years their story has been transformed thanks to new discoveries and advances in scientific techniques. In a compelling narrative, this book takes a fresh and engaging look at the whole story of the Neanderthals, setting out all the evidence, redressing the balance and arriving at a fairer assessment of a species that was closely related to us and in so doing addresses what it is to be human.
