Humans and Neanderthals may have shared jewelry designs, scientists say

In Bacho Kiro Cave, Bulgaria, researchers uncovered five modern human fossils some 2,000 stone and bone tools and ornaments, and roughly 14,000 bones from hunted animals, often bison and red deer.

Radiocarbon dating suggests the fossils ranged from 43,940 to 46,940 years old, and artifacts at the site date back 47,000 years. "Modern humans arrived in Europe much earlier than we thought they did."

Among the artifacts the researchers excavated from Bacho Kiro were pendants made from cave bear teeth. These strikingly resemble ornaments found in French and Spanish sites linked with Neanderthals dating to between 40,000 to 44,000 years old, raising the possibility that modern humans taught or inspired Neanderthals to make similar pendants.

"The design, use and sharing of jewelry is an expression of membership to a social entity, ethnic group, family or gender," said Marco Peresani, a paleoanthopologist at the University of Ferrara. Studying this ancient jewelry "can unveil unknown behaviors between Neanderthals and modern humans."

All in all, these findings suggest modern humans and Neanderthals coexisted in Europe for roughly 8,000 years, Hublin said.

Neanderthals and humans got it on from what scientists say, so it’s possible they shared their stuff and learned from each other too, they were as smart as humans. Until humans killed them off 😱

Or, more likely they interbred and have been asimilated. :gaycat:

They most likely raped them.
