Did you know that they made necklaces when they lived in Spain? Before they died out. Thank you, NPR.

Given the jaw line of the Neanderthals as represented by the Museum of Natural History (where my own relationship with them began) this is startling information. Where did they apply the glitter? I may be avoiding my book. But now I only want to read about Neanderthals. Neanderthal ideas of attractiveness/ Neanderthal standards of beauty —
