Since the first recorded discovery of their remains, a few kilometres east of Düsseldorf in western Germany, the Neanderthals have received a particularly harsh press in popular culture. Brutish, grotesque and enormously strong, yet not quite human, the old one-liner Where the men are men … and so are the women seems to have been invented perfectly for them. Even the workers who excavated their bones from the Neander Valley in the summer of 1856 were convinced at first that they had found a bear, not one of our distant ancestors.
