For too long the Neanderthals have been seen as dim-witted evolutionary dead-enders who looked and behaved completely differently from us, but in recent years their story has been transformed thanks to new discoveries and advances in scientific techniques. In a compelling narrative one that has not previously been told in a way that encompasses the entire dramatic arc from evolution to expansion to extinction this book takes a fresh and engaging look at the whole story of the Neanderthals, setting out all the evidence, redressing the balance and arriving at a fairer assessment of a species that was closely related to us and in so doing addresses what it is to be human.

Review:

Fresh and engaging --The Bookseller

The first complete chronological narrative of the species from emergence to extinction ... archaeologist Dimitra Papagianni and science historian Michael Morse have shaped a gem ... a beautifully synthesized portrait of a powerful people. --Nature

an engaging, informative, at times even amusing, account of 'our first cousins' --Minerva

Beautifully produced and in a smart slipcase, this book will make you want to abandon your Kindle. --Minerva
