Discussion - Dr. Maurice Lefford, SMC Member, Emeritus Professor Wayne State University - The Neanderthal in All of Us

There are several extinct human species that preceded the emergence of modern man (Homo sapiens).  

 

The extinct species H. neanderthalis is of particular interest for 2 reasons.  First it is the most recent extinct species, dying out only 30,000 years ago, and might be genetically closer to H. sapiens than any other species.  Second, H. sapiens and the Neanderthals shared the same territory in Northern Europe for perhaps as long as 60,000 years, leading to speculation about the social relationship between them.  

 

The recent research on these topics also shines a bright light on how scientific research is currently conducted.
