A recent dating and surprising
The results indicate that they date back 28,500 years, 8000 years after the alleged disappearance of Neanderthal Man. At this time we
find, throughout Eurasia, that crop-specific Upper Paleolithic Homo Sapiens explains Ludovic Slimak.
This discovery raises many questions about the users of the Mousterian culture near the pole. Especially as the various dates produced indicate that these remains are evidence of a single pass.
Are these the tracks of the last survivors of the Neanderthal lineage or the holders of that final Mousterian culture would they have been Homo sapiens custodians of their cultural heritage?
Neanderthals probably did not know a single end
The lack of human fossils can not decide this issue regrets the researcher. In all cases, the answer would be indicative of the persistence of a culture thousands of years after the extinction of biological group associated with it. Is the persistence of an outbreak of Neanderthal men in a northern area.
One hypothesis explains the disappearance of the latter by their inability to adapt to and colonize the northern most extreme environments on the planet (who knew there are 30 to 35 000 years a period of significant climatic variations). He would have given way to modern man with its technical superiority that could occupy the entire Eurasian space.
The presence of traces of Mousterian culture very close to the pole questions this assumption climate as well as its supposed technical inferiority. For Ludovic Slimak, do not look for a single reason for the disappearance of Homo neanderthalensis. It is more than probable that there were causes of extinctions varied depending on the location of various groups of Neanderthals.
Part of the X chromosome comes from Homo sapiens and Neanderthal man and is found only among people outside of Africa, says an international team of researchers.
