Smarter than you thought

Underground structures found in France tells us that the Neanderthals were capable of more then we have previously thought. In recent years we have learned more and more about them. Even though some of us are sure we have met them they became extinct 30,000 years ago. Not here to defend themselves they have been bad-mouthed since the days of Hobbes. Now we’re hopefully seeing a change. The Neanderthals had culture, art and now we’ve found traces of their constructions. They even had larger brains than us.
