Pressestimmen

If you want grounding in our current understanding of our human predecessors, Papagianni, and PhD archaeologist and Morse . . . have written the book for you. . . . Highly recommended. "

Kurzbeschreibung

For too long the Neanderthals have been seen as evolutionary dead-ends but advances in DNA technologies have forced a reassessment of their place in our own past. This extensively illustrated book looks at the Neanderthals from their evolution in Europe to their expansion to Siberia and their subsequent extinction. It turns out that the Neanderthals' behaviour was surprisingly modern so what caused their extinction? This is one of many mysteries that we are closer to solving. They evolved in Europe in parallel to the Homo Sapiens line evolving in Africa. When both species made their first moves into Asia, the Neanderthals may even have had the upper hand. The superiority of Homo sapiens suddenly seems less obvious or inevitable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good accessible summary of current research 7. Oktober 2013
Von Adam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Together with ANCESTOR by RAYMOND STEYN (science thriller, i.e. fiction) this my favourite 'recent' book on Neanderthals. It contained a good summary of the latest Neanderthal research, and was written in an easily 'digestible' manner. The last chapter was especially entertaining (the authors' take on Neanderthal representation in popular culture. I have to agree with them - why are fictional Neanderthals always portrayed as telepathic? Surely there are other uses for a big brain? In fact, I don't think fiction authors need to embellish much - the facts are interesting enough).

The one thing that struck me, though (and this isn't the book fault), is that so many theories (even mainstream ones) are based on very few facts. Scientists just don't seem willing to accept that certain things will never be revealed (societal structures, norms, behaviours). Unless you can invent a time machine, it's impossible to study these extinct societies in action.
Also, the attitude towards Neanderthals throughout history seems extremely prejudiced. Many scientists today accept that, given a similar brain size, cognitive abilities were probably similar too. There's no way to deduct this from fossils or other artefacts. Which is why a clone (for which the technology is getting more plausible by the day - hence my reference to the fictional ANCESTOR) is the only thing that will settle the debate.

All in all, though, a very informative book, with good language use throughout.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Neanderthals' Place in Our Common Homo Evolution and Culture 11. Dezember 2013
Von Gin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I just returned from France where I visited Le Moustier, Lascaux, Rouffignac, Le Grotto de Sorcier and Le Musee National Prehistoire to fulfill my lifetime dream. The Neanderthals Rediscovered put the artifacts into perspective based on the most recent analyses while balancing differing interpretations. Papagianni offered a clear, easy to understand interpretation of prehistoric remnants of our species illustrated with helpful photos and charts. I plan to use his book as a reference for context when new finds are published. I'm also pleased to note that my DNA profile found 1.5% Neanderthal and 0.5% Denisovian heritage living inside me! Neanderthals 'R Us!

5.0 von 5 Sternen What does it mean to be human? 8. März 2014
Von Axie Barclay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Much speculation and misinformation exists about Neanderthals, but what does recent research and the latest scientific innovation reveal about them? Dimitra Papagianni and Michael A. Moore delve into this, discussing the surprisingly modern behavior of Neanderthals, in their book, //The Neanderthals Rediscovered: How Modern Science is Rewriting Their Story//.

From the first humans to the caricatures about Stone Age man, //The Neanderthals Rediscovered// covers a swath of early human history, concentrating on Neanderthals, and the archaeological record of some Homo species in Europe. Were the Neanderthals the victors over other species? Were they bred out of existence or overthrown? Papagianni and Moore discuss this as well, along with what can be inferred about daily life, Neanderthal spread and decline, and their legacy to modern culture.

This is definitely a book for everyone with interest in human origins, with an emphasis on the Neanderthal perspective. It a reads less like a textbook and more like a novel, simultaneously informing the scholar but not talking down to the lay person. Rather than being given facts and figures, it feels as though the reader is interacting with the author and sharing in the love for exploration of human origins and exuberance of discovery.

Von David Hoogakker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A clearly written and up-to-date account of the history of Neanderthal discoveries. There are helpful illustrations throughout and the authors include a bibliography that includes works by many well known paleoanthropologists. A comprehensive index to the book is also provided.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Kin folk after all 6. Januar 2014
Von Isis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very well researched. I would have liked to see more about how they lived their daily lives. I have. Other books about early hominids. So I will possibly reread some of them now that I am on a Neanderthal roll. ALSO, I am pleased to have NEanderthal legacy.......I Have vivid green eyes. I always wondered where they came from. Nice to know.
