New Neandertal Museum in Croatia


I guess I have one more reason to visit eastern Europe.  A new museum in Croatia is dedicated to everyone’s favorite cousin, the Neandertal

“Today we look at the Neanderthals as humans. They had emotions, helped the weak and the sick, we have found indications of burying rituals and established that they had the speech gene just like ours,” Radovcic said.

Findings throughout Europe show that the Neanderthals painted pictures, probably engaged in some sort of tribal dancing or music, and even cleaned their teeth.

“Even if they were not our direct ancestors, they were very close relatives to our ancestors, which again makes them our ancestors,”

The idea of a Neadertal brushing its teeth is particularly appealing to me … not sure why.
