Summary
About 60,000 years ago, a group of people carefully buried one of its dead in a shallow grave, placing flowers on the body. They were Neanderthals, usually thought of as brutish, dim-witted cave dwellers. Have we maligned them? Are they the ancestors of us all? Richard Leakey details the emergence of our species, Homo sapiens, and explores some of the astonishing art our ancestors left behind, including the beautiful cave of Lascaux, filmed here for the first time since it was closed 20 years ago
