What is true about the Krapina site?

Krapina is an unusual Neandertal site with some interesting characteristics. Stable isotope analysis indicates that Neandertals consumed meat at about the same level as contemporary carnivores. Both Neandertals and modern Homo sapiens exhibit the same frequency of food stress, as indicated by bone growth.

Where is Krapina cave?

Krapina remains, fossilized remains of at least 24 early Neanderthal adults and children, consisting of skulls, teeth, and other skeletal parts found in a rock shelter near the city of Krapina, northern Croatia, between 1899 and 1905.

Did Neanderthals wear jewelry?

Study: Neanderthals Wore Jewelry And Makeup Scientists working in Spain say they’ve found evidence of sophisticated Neanderthal inventions — jewelry and makeup. Ornamentation is viewed as evidence of “symbolic” thinking, a trait most often thought of as belonging only to modern humans.

What happened to the Neanderthals?

The last appearance date of Neanderthals is commonly cited as ca. 30 thousand years ago (ka). The Neanderthal disappearance is viewed by some as a true extinction. Others however, contend that Neanderthals did not become extinct, but instead were assimilated into the modern human gene pool.

Where was evidence found that Neandertals practiced cannibalism?

A team of French and American archaeologists has found clear evidence of cannibalism at a 100,000-year-old Neanderthal cave site in southern France. “This is conclusive evidence that at least some Neanderthals practiced cannibalism,” said paleontologist Tim White, professor of integrative biology.

What was the evidence found at Gran Dolina Spain that suggests Neandertals practiced cannibalism?

Evidence for Cannibalism Although there are no carnivore tooth marks on the bone, the bones are heavily fragmented and show cut marks made by stone tools, indicating that the Neanderthals were almost certainly killed and cannibalized by another Neanderthal group, not by animal scavengers.

Did Neanderthals paint their bodies?

Scientists claim to have the first persuasive evidence that Neanderthals wore “body paint” 50,000 years ago. The scientists found lumps of a yellow pigment, that they say was possibly used as a foundation. They also found red powder mixed up with flecks of a reflective brilliant black mineral.

Can we bring back Neanderthals?

The Neanderthal, also known as homo neanderthalensis, could be up for making a come-back. The Neanderthal genome was sequenced in 2010. Meanwhile, new gene-editing tools have been developed and technical barriers to ‘de-extinction’ are being overcome. So, technically, yes, we could attempt the cloning of a Neanderthal.

Which of the following is a location where Neandertal remains have been recovered?

Neandertal remains from Shanidar cave in northern Iraq provide the first evidence of which of the following? What does the Multiregional Continuity model of the origin of modern humans state? Gene flow is the key to evolution, turning archaic H. sapiens into modern humans in various parts of the world.
