Fascinating stuff...the Neanderthals knew to stay away from us--they were very clever to do so too! Thanks Lone

Mom and dad did a DNA test to see what ancestry we have Dad: 3% neanderthal and Mom is 2% neanderthal.

Can anteaters be neanderthal?

Even though 23andMe does a partial DNA, finding how much was a bit surprising. They also do a partial medical history and relatives.

I'd like to know what these new carbon dating techniques and mathematical models are. . .

Also, love how the term Neanderthals was derived, from a valley in western Germany
