I had my DNA tested and the test revealed that I’m up to 4% Neanderthal, the so-called “cave man,” a human species that died out about 30,000 years ago. Most people of Northern European ancestry have some Neanderthal DNA. Fortunately for us, the latest archaeological findings show Neanderthals were far more intelligent and creative than anybody thought. I decided to look in on our ancient relatives in action.
