 shows up first in Neandertals in their teen years 

 is seen only in male Neandertals 

 is seen even in the youngest Neandertals—one as young as 6 months old when it died—yet found

 

Question 3

 

In the production of an Acheulean handaxe, numerous stone flakes were produced. Wear pattern analysis has shown that these flakes:

 are simply waste and served no further function 

 were buried with the dead, implying the use of symbols among these hominins

 were used as cutting and scraping tools 

 were placed on arrow shafts and used in hunting 

 

Question 4

Question 8

 

The Sima de los Huesos site is of great significance in our analysis of the Neandertals because:

 there are several intentional graves in the cave 

 there is evidence of cannibalism at this Neandertal site 

 the more than two dozen individuals recovered represent a very early form of Neandertal or “pre-Neandertal”

 the Neandertals found in the cave are the youngest ever recovered; they represent a population of the last Neandertals

 

Question 9

 

Some researchers see evidence for compassion on the part of the Neandertals in:

 fossils that show that some Neandertals survived severe trauma or chronic disease

 their placing flowers on graves 

 their strict vegetarian diet 

 their peaceful coexistence with smaller, weaker anatomically modern human beings

 

Question 10

 

The pre-Neandertals at Sima de los Huesos exhibited about what proportion of the standard “classic” Neandertal features:
