These methods would have substantially increased fat consumption, which was a major nutritional requirement of communities with low carbohydrate and high protein intake.
At Grotte du Lazaret , France, a total of 23 red deer, 6 ibexes, 3 aurochs, and 1 roe deer appear to have been hunted in a single autumn hunting season, when strong male and female deer herds would group together for rut.
The entire carcasses seem to have been transported to the cave and then butchered. Because this is such a large amount of food to consume before spoilage, it is possible these Neanderthals were curing and preserving it before winter set in.
At , years old, it is the oldest potential evidence of food storage. At Cueva de los Aviones , Spain, the remains of edible, algae eating shellfish associated with the alga Jania rubens could indicate that, like some modern hunter gatherer societies, harvested shellfish were held in water-soaked algae to keep them alive and fresh until consumption.
Competition from large Ice Age predators was rather high. Cave lions likely targeted horses, large deer and wild cattle; and leopards primarily reindeer and roe deer; which heavily overlapped with Neanderthal diet.
To defend a kill against such ferocious predators, Neanderthals may have engaged in a group display of yelling, arm waving, or stone throwing; or quickly gathered meat and abandoned the kill.
However, at Grotte de Spy, Belgium, the remains of wolves, cave lions, and cave bears—which were all major predators of the time—indicate Neanderthals hunted their competitors to some extent.
Neanderthals and cave hyaenas may have exemplified niche differentiation , and actively avoided competing with each other.
Although they both mainly targeted the same groups of creatures—deer, horses, and cattle—Neanderthals mainly hunted the former and cave hyaenas the latter two.
Further, animal remains from Neanderthal caves indicate they preferred to hunt prime individuals, whereas cave hyaenas hunted weaker or younger prey, and cave hyaena caves have a higher abundance of carnivore remains.
There are several instances of Neanderthals practising cannibalism across their range. For the five cannibalised Neanderthals at the Grottes de Goyet , Belgium, there is evidence that the upper limbs were disarticulated , the lower limbs defleshed and also smashed likely to extract bone marrow , the chest cavity disemboweled , and the jaw dismembered.
There is also evidence that the butchers used some bones to retouch their tools. The processing of Neanderthal meat at Grottes de Goyet is similar to how they processed horse and reindeer.
These cannibalistic tendencies have been explained as either ritual defleshing , pre-burial defleshing to prevent scavengers or foul smell , an act of war, or simply for food.
Due to a small number of cases, and the higher number of cut marks seen on cannibalised individuals than animals indicating inexperience , cannibalism was probably not a very common practice, and it may have only been done in times of extreme food shortages as in some cases in recorded human history.
Neanderthal are known to have used ochre, a clay earth pigment. The discoverers of the latter two claim that pigment was applied to the exterior to make it match the naturally vibrant inside colouration.
Neanderthals are suggested to have used various bird parts as artistic mediums, specifically black feathers. They specifically noted the cinereous vulture , red-billed chough , kestrel , lesser kestrel , alpine chough , rook , jackdaw , and the white tailed eagle in Middle Palaeolithic sites.
Because the notches are more-or-less equidistant to each other, they are the first modified bird bones that cannot be explained by simple butchery, and for which the argument of design intent is based on direct evidence.
From Lower and Middle Palaeolithic European and Middle Eastern sites, 63 stone objects with purported engravings have been reported from 27 different sites, of which 20 are on flint cortexes from 11 sites, 7 are on slabs from 7 sites, and 36 are on pebbles from 13 sites.
However, it is debated whether or not these were made with symbolic intent. This would indicate Neanderthal authorship, and similar iconography recorded in other Western European sites—such as Les Merveilles , France, and Cueva del Castillo , Spain—could potentially also have Neanderthal origins.
Neanderthals are known to have collected a variety of unusual objects—such as crystals or fossils—without any real functional purpose or any indication of damage caused by use.
It is unclear if these objects were simply picked up for their aesthetic qualities, or if some symbolic significance was applied to them.
These items are mainly quartz crystals , but also other minerals such as cerussite , iron pyrite , calcite , and galena.
Neanderthals made stone tools, and are associated with the Mousterian industry. Levallois made it easier to control flake shape and size, and as a difficult-to-learn and unintuitive process, the Levallois technique may have been directly taught generation to generation rather than via purely observational learning.
The makers may have been a transitional culture between the Neanderthal Mousterian and the modern human Aurignacian.
In , two This indicates the technology was in use in this region for a long time. Since reindeer remains were the most abundant, the use of less abundant bovine ribs may indicate a specific preference for bovine ribs.
Potential lissoirs have also been reported from Grosse Grotte , Germany made of mammoth , and Grottes des Canalettes, France red deer. Other ambiguous transitional cultures include the Italian Uluzzian industry,  and the Balkan Szeletian industry.
There is some debate if Neanderthals had long-ranged weapons. The Neanderthals in 10 coastal sites in Italy namely Grotta del Cavallo and Grotta dei Moscerini and Kalamakia Cave , Greece, are known to have crafted scrapers using smooth clam shells, and possibly hafted them to a wooden handle.
They probably chose this clam species because it has the most durable shell. At Grotta di Santa Lucia , Italy, in the Campanian volcanic arc , Neanderthals collected the porous volcanic pumice , which, for contemporary humans, was probably used for polishing points and needles.
The pumices are associated with shell tools. At Abri du Maras, France, twisted fibres and a 3-ply inner-bark-fibre cord fragment associated with Neanderthals show that they produced string and cordage, but it is unclear how widespread this technology was because the materials used to make them such as animal hair, hide, sinew, or plant fibres are biodegradable and preserve very poorly.
This technology could indicate at least a basic knowledge of weaving and knotting , which would have made possible the production of nets, containers, packaging, baskets, carrying devices, ties, straps, harnesses, clothes, shoes, beds, bedding, mats, flooring, roofing, walls, and snares, and would have been important in hafting, fishing, and seafaring.
One possibility is as thread for attaching or stringing small objects. At the Italian Poggetti Vecchi site, there is evidence they used fire to process boxwood branches to make digging sticks , a common implement in hunter-gatherer societies.
Many Mousterian sites have evidence of fire, some for extended periods of time, though it is unclear if they were capable of starting fire or simply scavenged from naturally occurring wildfires.
Indirect evidence of fire starting ability includes pyrite residue on a couple dozen bifaces from late Mousterian c.
Many Neanderthal sites lack evidence for such activity perhaps due to natural degradation of the area over tens of thousands of years, such as by bear infiltration after abandonment of the settlement.
In a number of caves, evidence of hearths has been detected. Neanderthals likely considered air circulation when making hearths as a lack of proper ventilation for a single hearth can render a cave uninhabitable in several minutes.
In Grotte du Lazaret, France, smoke was probably naturally ventilated during the winter as the interior cave temperature was greater than the outside temperature; likewise, the cave was likely only inhabited in the winter.
One ring was 6. Evidence of the use of fire and burnt bones also suggest human activity. The complexity of their social lives also suggests they must have been able to talk to each other, although their language may have been simpler than ours.
The most recent fossil and archaeological evidence of Neanderthals is from about 40, years ago in Europe. After that point they appear to have gone physically extinct, although part of them lives on in the DNA of humans alive today.
The extinction of Homo neanderthalensis is a well-known fact, but why did this species disappear after having survived for more than , years?
We don't yet know. One view is that we are the reason. Early modern humans started to arrive in Europe more than 40, years ago.
Perhaps Neanderthals were unable to cope with competition for resources from incoming groups of Homo sapiens. Ancient DNA began to be recovered from Neanderthal fossils in , and this has led on to the reconstruction of several complete genomes.
These indicate that Neanderthals ranging from Spain to Siberia were relatively low in numbers and diversity during their last 20, years.
The genome of one female individual from the Altai Mountains also shows signs of long-term inbreeding in her population, a further indication of low numbers and isolation.
It seems that regular and sometimes extreme climatic fluctuations continually fragmented Neanderthal groups during the last , years, preventing them from building up large populations and continuous distributions across their range.
Palaeoanthropologists - including Prof Chris Stringer right - search for evidence of Neanderthals at an excavation in Gibraltar.
Neanderthals did not all become extinct at the same time. Their disappearance may have been staggered, suggesting that they were replaced by early modern humans as a result of local population extinctions, rather than being quickly overrun.
Rapid and dramatic climate change may have been another major factor that contributed to Neanderthals' extinction. When severe changes in temperature happened rapidly, the plants and animals Neanderthals relied on were also affected.
Faced with such conditions, only the most resourceful and adaptable could survive. Although the first Neanderthal remains were found at sites in Belgium and Gibraltar in and respectively, they weren't recognised as such until decades later.
It was the partial skeleton of a male Neanderthal unearthed during quarrying operations in the Neander Valley in Germany in that was first recognised as a distinct form of human.
It was named as a new human species, Homo neanderthalensis , eight years later in It was the first ancient human species ever identified and is now known as Neanderthal 1 or Feldhofer 1, after the original name of the cave where it was found.

Prof Chris Stringer discusses why and what it means. Breeding with Neanderthals allowed our ancestors to better cope with European winters, but also passed on diseases we suffer today.
Unearth the one-million-year story of humans in Britain and their struggle to survive in a changing land. Compared to early humans living in tropical Africa, with more abundant edible plant foods available year-round, the number of plant foods Neanderthals could eat would have dropped significantly during the winter of colder climates, forcing Neanderthals to exploit other food options like meat more heavily.
There is evidence that Neanderthals were specialized seasonal hunters, eating animals were available at the time i. Scientists have clear evidence of Neanderthal hunting from uncovering sharp wooden spears and large numbers of big game animal remains were hunted and butchered by Neanderthals.
There is also evidence from Gibraltar that when they lived in coastal areas, they exploited marine resources such as mollusks, seals, dolphins and fish.
Scientists have also found plaque on the remains of molar teeth containing starch grains—concrete evidence that Neanderthals ate plants.
This innovative technique allowed flakes of predetermined shape to be removed and fashioned into tools from a single suitable stone. Acheulean tools worked from a suitable stone that was chipped down to tool form by the removal of flakes off the surface.
Neanderthals used tools for activities like hunting and sewing. Scientists have also recovered scrapers and awls larger stone or bone versions of the sewing needle that modern humans use today associated with animal bones at Neanderthal sites.
Neanderthals were the first early humans to wear clothing, but it is only with modern humans that scientists find evidence of the manufacture and use of bone sewing needles to sew together tighter fitting clothing.
Neanderthals also controlled fire, lived in shelters, and occasionally made symbolic or ornamental objects. This may be one of the reasons that the Neanderthal fossil record is so rich compared to some earlier human species; being buried greatly increases the chance of becoming a fossil!
Both fossil and genetic evidence indicate that Neanderthals and modern humans Homo sapiens evolved from a common ancestor between , and , years ago.
Over just a few thousand years after modern humans moved into Europe, Neanderthal numbers dwindled to the point of extinction. All traces of Neanderthals disappeared by about 40, years ago.
The most recently dated Neanderthal fossils come from small areas of western Europe and the Near east, which was likely where the last population of this early human species existed.
But scientists are constantly in the field and the laboratory, excavating new areas and conducting analyses with groundbreaking technology, continually filling in some of the gaps about our understanding of human evolution.
Below are some of the still unanswered questions about H. These discoveries may or may not be attributable to the Neandertals but exhibit similar characteristics.
