Big eyes may be beautiful, but they could be what did for the Neanderthals, say University of Oxford scientists.
The near-complete remains of a woolly mammoth skeleton have been discovered on the banks of the river Marne near Paris, France.
Humans last interbred with Neanderthals well after they spread out of Africa, a genetic analysis has shown.
Just as we were all getting used to being part-Neanderthal, Cambridge University scientists say we might not be, after all.
Neanderthals cooked and ate their veggies and even used medicinal plants when they were ill, an examination of their teeth has found.
Scientists have sequenced the complete Neanderthal genome, and discovered that modern humans are as much as two percent Neanderthal ourselves, thanks to comparatively recent interbreeding.
