Altamura Man was discovered in 1993 near the city of Altamura, Italy. The ancient calcified skull confounded experts, who could not agree on his age, nor the species he belonged to. However, a new study has now determined that Altamura Man is a Neanderthal and the bones are between 128,000 and 187,000 years old. Using the latest high-tech methods, they have been able to extract a bone sample which represents the oldest DNA ever recovered from a Neanderthal.

Rather than parted and fluffed, Neanderthal hair was probably matted, greased, painted, hacked short or some combination of these. Are we even sure it grew continuously? or was it more like fur? Not knocking Neanderthal coiffures. Cro Magnon hair was probably distastefully unmodern as well.

Reminds me of Shakira :-) Neanderthal Woman. She looks quite beautiful, I can see why Cro-Magnon men might have taken a neanderthal woman as a mate and had children, and vice versa. This doesn't offend me and the genetic evidence is real.
