    That is class! Not beyond the realms of possibility ,you'd imagine, at all.

    Interesting the reconstruction picture. Are they suggesting a grassland tundra environment or that the Neanderthals had done some clearance...

    Sure that was practically last week in the scheme of things! Imagine coming across a find like that! Illegal to use a metal detector here!

    Hate to show my ignorance, but did the Neanderthal have fire ?

    I'm very disturbed by the extent of tomb-raiding going on in the UK, due to metal detectors - also, industrial scale hobby diggers doing diy excavations.

    It will affect us here, when they realise that we may have tough laws, but v little capacity to enforce.
