Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art
At a time when our species has never faced greater threats, we're obsessed with what makes us special. But, much of what defines us was also in Neanderthals, and their DNA is still inside us. Planning, co-operation, altruism, craftsmanship, aesthetic sense, imagination...perhaps even a desire for transcendence beyond mortality.
It is only by understanding Neanderthals that we can truly understand ourselves.
