Neanderthals Were People, Too: (NYT)

New research shows they shared many behaviors that we long believed to be uniquely human. Why did science get them so wrong?

I’m blogging this in the context of my series on post-humanism. I think that “humanizing” neanderthals is only the beginning. As we get more evidence on species that were close relatives but not homo sapiens, I think it will show that they had many of the features we think of as uniquely human, and our experience as home sapiens is only different in subtle ways.
