Details: We are hybrids. All non-African people alive today are descended from Neanderthals, whose native population declined to zero about 40,000 years ago. Their DNA became subsumed into Homo sapiens (us) genome via interbreeding during the 5,000 years of their coexistence in Europe and the Middle East. This zoom presentation will discuss what is known about their lives, life-styles, and deaths. Come meet your grandparents!
