Synopsis

(The Neanderthal’s Necklace) Why did the Neanderthals suddenly disappear? Members of a parallel human race that evolved in Europe over hundreds of thousands of years, they provide a surprising mirror of humanity. The struggle between Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons, our ancestors, lasted thousands of years. In this tale of life and death and the awakening of human awareness, Juan Luis Arsuaga depicts the struggle for survival of two clashing species. Only one is to survive.
