Neandertal CSI revisited

Discover has put an article online that they ran in the November issue, which features Steven Churchill’s research (“Did we mate with Neanderthals, or did we murder them”). It’s a good “present status” article about possible human-Neandertal interactions, pretty much as summarized in the headline. It would be a good link for intro classes.

For more information about almost every one of the topics in the article, you could do worse than searching my archives:
