This is a topic that I know absolutely nothing about, so I'm not sure who this article, "Sheanderthal," was pushed to me. (Maybe it's because my six-year-old is constantly asking me how to spell the names of dinosaurs and other words about the prehistoric world, and I have to look the words up on Google!) But this was a pretty fascinating read about what scientists know, and what they speculate, about the lives of female Neanderthals. I was particularly struck by the interdisciplinarity of the work, combining archaeology, genetics, anthropology, biology, and probably a couple of more disciplines I've not noticed.
I'm now watching a conversation between Michael Shermer and her about her book Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art. Shermer talks a little too much, in my view (sorry, dude!), but it's pretty interesting to listen to.
