See What Neanderthal Man Looked Like





Scientists have used computer technology to recreate the face of Neanderthal Man, right. A Swiss-German team from the Rheinische Landesmuseum in Bonn used the top of 42,000-year-old skull found in 1856 as the basis for their reconstruction.

The model, which depicts quite a modern-looking caveman, forms the centrepiece of an exhibition called “Roots 2006”.

The original Neanderthal is a valley in western Germany.
