Homo Neanderthalensis

Contrary to what I always believed about the Neanderthal man they were the first to develop symbolic thinking. They buried their dead with a ritual; they cured their sick and were able to recognize themselves as individuals; and of course my favorite , they painted. Simple symbols but the artistic need to represent was there.
