Early Homo sapiens in Europe
Mark Aldenderfer
Data from Mandrin Cave in southwestern France challenge our understanding of the entry of modern humans into Europe and their interactions with Neanderthals. Previous studies estimated the date of entry as being around 45,000 years ago, followed by the rapid disappearance of Neanderthals. Slimak et al. have now discovered alternating strata of Neanderthal and modern human stone tool assemblages. One of these strata, which was dated to 54,000 years ago and has an assemblage of tools resembling one found in the Mediterranean, also has dental remains similar to those of modern humans. These findings suggest that the replacement of Neanderthals in Europe may not have been a single event but one of greater complexity.
