Neanderthals don’t get much credit for brainpower. They lived in Europe for hundreds of thousands of years but eventually were replaced by modern humans from Africa, who apparently were smarter.
But life in snowbound caves may not have been so brutish after all. Scientists working in Spain say they’ve got evidence of some pretty sophisticated Neanderthal inventions — body ornaments and cosmetics.
