Biological and Cultural Patterns of Neanderthals. Compose a two page illustrate-d mini-report. summarizing what scientists have discovere-d or inferred regarding the biological and cultural patterns characteristic of the Neanderthals. And also of the biological and cultural patterns characteristic of early modern Homo sapiens about 43,000 years ago. Also when early modern humans spread across a Europe already occupied by Neanderthals for thousands of years.
Be sure to include illustrations and information summarizing what is known of the rather simple and monotonous, Mousterian toolkits, (occasional bifaces, prepare-d core scrapers, crude points, possible stabbing spears).Which is made by Neanderthals. As well as the much more sophisticate-d and varied Upper Paleolithic tool kits made by early modern humans.
Upper Paleolithic (modern human’s) industries are all characterize-d by long thin stone blades retouched for many different purposes, carved and polishe-d bone and ivory implements, carve-d figurines and other art objects, jewelry, cave paintings, decorative art, musical instruments, projectile technologies with beautiful stone and bone spear points, elaborately carved spear throwers and harpoons, as well as an amazing variety of other indicators that the early modern humans of the Upper Paleolithic possessed full cultural capacity, symbolic consciousness inclu spoken language, a propensity for cultural innovation and change, and what Joseph Campbell referred to as a mythic imagination in full career.
