The following is a list of physical traits that distinguish Neanderthals from modern humans. Morley, Iain 2006.

Does anyone know the height of homo sapiens (or what evolved into homo sapiens) in that time period? Tooth enamel is the most durable substance in the human body, and Neanderthal teeth have become a rich source of information. Evidence of infections on Neanderthal skeletons is usually visible in the form of lesions on the bone, which are created by systemic infection on areas closest to the bone. Cornélio AM, de Bittencourt-Navarrete RE, de Bittencourt Brum R, Queiroz CM, Costa MR. Front Neurosci. [21] Therefore, Rae concludes that the design of the large and extensive Neanderthal nose was evolved for the hotter climate of the Middle East and went unchanged when the Neanderthals entered Europe.

Nothing makes them cringe more than using "neanderthal" as an adjective to describe the dumb and the lazy. A study of 669 Neanderthal crowns showed that 75% of individuals suffered some degree of hypoplasia. Depending on when and where they were living, that might have meant a diet of meat or plants—or often both. The last Neanderthal may have died 40,000 years ago, but many of their genes through modern humans. Within the west Asian and European record, there are five broad groups of pathology or injury noted in Neanderthal skeletons. Eurasian J Med. Researchers were able to examine dental, cranial, and postcranial material, allowing the assessment of dental and skeletal maturation with age.
Neanderthals had strong, muscular bodies, and wide hips and shoulders. Two non-specific indicators of stress during development are found in teeth, which record stresses, such as periods of food scarcity or illness, that disrupt normal dental growth. One of the more tenacious misconceptions about Neanderthals is that they were exclusively meat eaters. Within the west Asian and European record, there are five broad groups of pathology or injury noted in Neanderthal skeletons. Based on 45 long bones from maximally 14 males and 7 females, Neanderthals' height averages between 164 and 168 (males) resp. Holdermann, Claus-Stephan, and Jordi Serangeli 1999. USA.gov. These bones are known as Neanderthal 1 today. Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Neanderthal children grew at the same rates and were weaned at roughly same age as Homo sapien children, according to a new study published Monday in the journal PNAS. The material was found in a limestone quarry near Düsseldorf. Adults grew to about 1.50-1.75m tall and weighed about 64-82kg. Neanderthals had more robust and stockier builds than modern humans, wider and barrel-shaped rib cages; wider pelvises; and proportionally shorter forearms and forelegs. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. A 2007 genetic study suggested some Neanderthals may have had red hair.[4][5]. [citation needed]. Anna Goldfield, an archaeologist who received her Ph.D. from Boston University, specializes in analyzing faunal remains from archaeological sites, with particular emphasis on the diets of Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans. [22], This research suggests much more rapid physical development in Neanderthals than in modern human children. While the structure of the head and face were not very far removed from those of modern humans, there were still quite noticeable differences.

The new findings suggest weaning onset is physiological phenomena, not a cultural one. Neanderthal anatomy differed from modern humans in that they had a more robust build and distinctive morphological features, especially on the cranium, which gradually accumulated more derived aspects, particularly in certain isolated geographic regions. Paleoanthropologist Miki Ben-Dor, of Tel Aviv University in Israel, has suggested that Neanderthals developed these large torsos over millennia to house livers and kidneys that had enlarged to cope with high levels of protein. Rapid ecological turnover and its impact on Neanderthal and other human populations.
