"Neanderthals lived in Central Europe"

This name was given after the Neanderthal - the area near Dusseldorf - where, in 1856, was found in a lime kiln, the first relics of the bones of this species of primitive man. However, Neanderthals lived not only in that geographical area, but throughout South and Central Europe (except the Alps), North Africa and Southwest Asia. Causes of the disappearance of Neanderthals are a mystery to scientists. Probably they not interfered at all, or too little, with the ancestors of today's men, who appeared behind with 40,000 in Europe. The fact is that Neanderthals were much stronger than modern man and also developed in a similar culturally way.
