In Search of the First Thinkers

Résumé

The Neanderthals occupied the earth for around 100,000 years and co-existed with our ancestors for at least 10,000 years. Their intelligence was probably very close to our own. They were able to manufacture stone tools like the Cro-Magnons, our ancestors, and they used language, hunted, socialised and practised funerary rituals. Additionally, they were physically better adapted than our ancestors for a cold climate.

Yet the Neanderthals died out while our ancestors survived. Juan Luis Arsuaga suggests that our ancestors' ability to use symbols combined with their dexterity with tools, such as sewing implements, may have helped them to survive.

This is a story of the sweeping landscapes of a young Earth, of mountains and lakes and of the Ice Age. Within this vista, a drama is being played out between two species. Both are intelligent, conscious and part of reasonably sophisticated communities - only one will survive.

This is a book about our origins and where we came from.
