For over a century we saw them as inferior to Homo Sapiens. Today, Neanderthals are seen as fully human, different from us only because of their distant cultural traditions. But does the truth lie somewhere else entirely?

Neanderthal hunter and paleoanthropologist Ludovic Slimak understands these enigmatic creatures like no one else after studying them for three decades. Taking us on a fascinating archaeological investigation from the Arctic Circle to the deep Mediterranean forests, he traces their steps, deciphering their stories through every single detail they left behind.

In this stunning, bold book, he argues that Neanderthals should be understood on their own terms. They had their own history, their own rituals, their own customs, and their own intelligence. A remarkable intelligence, for sure, but an intelligence that may have been very different from ours - although it can still teach us much about ourselves.

A thought-provoking detective story, written with wit and verve, 
The Naked Neanderthal shifts our understanding of deep history - and in the process reveals just how much we have yet to learn.


"Told like a story - this great read reveals all about our misconceptions of Neanderthals and what they were really like! Wonderfully written and compulsively readable! Couldn't put it down!" - Kendal (Tour Guide & Service Assistant)
