The Neanderthals Were ”Technologically Skilled” Toolmakers
The Neanderthals obviously loved making music.
Once upon a time evolutionists promoted Neanderthal man as a stooped, grunting ape-like creature. That time has passed ages ago.
Recent research suggests that the Neanderthals were fully human, just like you and me.
In the 1970s, archaeologists discovered a ravine at La Cotte de St Brelade on the Channel island of Jersey. They found over 250, 000 stone tools, including hand axes, manufactured by the Neanderthals.
According to BBC news, ”The huge amounts of carefully manufactured tools show just how technologically skilled early Neanderthal groups were.” They honed the tools to make them better and even re-used old materials.
The research shows that Neanderthals were surprisingly hi-tech.
