Club-wielding brute? Slow-witted caveman? How about adaptable apex predator who thrived in a challenging Ice Age environment? Find out how our perspectives of Neanderthals are changing during an evening with Janet Young, curator of the major exhibition Neanderthals, and members of the exhibition team.
