Leur découverte remet en cause l’image de Néandertal qui a prévalu jusqu’alors, comme nous l’explique cet article publié dans le numéro 2 de la revue Carnets de science....

Teeth are extremely valuable as they are exposed directly to the environment we live in – anything we consume or breathe comes directly into contact with them. And, most importantly, they are hard enough to preserve really well over time...

Pleistocene Epoch: Facts About the Last Ice Age
The Pleistocene Epoch is typically defined as the time period that began about 2.6 million years ago and lasted until about 11,700 years ago. The most recent Ice Age occurred then, as glaciers covered huge parts of the planet Earth.
