From British daily The Independent:
French and Belgian archaeologists have found proof that Neanderthals – mankind’s closest relatives – were living in near-tropical conditions, hunting rhinoceros and elephant, close to what is now France’s Channel coast 125,000 years ago.
No traces of Neanderthal activity have previously been found in north-west Europe during this period – a 15,000-year interval between two ice ages.
Historians previously thought that Neanderthals, who thrived in cold conditions, had failed to adapt to the warmer weather and had retreated to the east or to the north.
