      Description: Scientists have long known that the popular image of the
      Neanderthal as a primitive, hairy, heavily browed, club-wielding brute is
      not supported by the fossil evidence. But to date, no consensus has been
      arrived at on the riddle of Neanderthals' disappearance. Drawing on the
      latest findings, Ian Tattersall will address the mysteries of the
      Neanderthals - who they were, how they lived, how they succeeded for so
      long, and what happened to them. In his presentation he will draw upon his
      own survey of all known Neanderthal fossils, work with Neanderthal DNA, and
      on other lines of evidence. He will also discuss what can be understood
      today about the relationship of Neanderthals to our own species Homo
      sapiens.
