The Smart Neanderthal

Cave Art, Bird Catching, and the Cognitive Revolution

Clive Finlayson

  • Overturns current thinking about Neanderthals and the "cognitive revolution" using new evidence of their intellectual abilities and of interbreeding with humans
  • A personal account of the author's and his colleagues' work in Gibraltar and their discovery of new evidence about Neanderthals' relationships with birds
  • Captures the excitement and challenges of working in the field
  • Argues that aspects of Neanderthal behaviour indicate that they were not cognitively inferior to Modern Humans but had their own rituals and art forms
