Evidence Also Suggests Neanderthals Were Smarter Than We Thought
The artifacts also included distinctive tools and personal ornaments and new ways of using stone, antler, and bone which weren’t common in Neanderthals until years later. The evidence indicates that Neanderthals adopted these news ways of making tools from the Homo sapiens. It seems like they imitated the Homo sapiens’ tools to create their own. Previous to this discovery, there have been discoveries of strings, basket, and tools made by the Neanderthals which means they weren’t just clueless cavemen after all.
The Bacho Kiro cave also contained over 11,000 animal bone fragments from over 23 species including red deer, cave bears, goats, and bison.
