Documentary posits a theory about ancient structures (natural or man made?) in the Carpathian mountains.

The suggestion is that Neanderthals were responsible for the change in the appearance of humans ie light skinned and fair haired. Formerly depicted as the dark, brutish people now understood to have been absorbed by the Cro-Magnon. Some modern humans today do have Neanderthal DNA and the film maker suggests that the Neanderthal was culturally accomplished and may have introduced religion to the Cro-Magnon.

Were Neanderthals really "absorbed" by the Cro Magnon?


I often wonder why I try.

Yes, this seems to be what science unraveled through our DNA. 1.5 to 2.1 of the population outside of Africa has some type of Neanderthal DNA. There is more than one type!

So Neanderthal are not a different species?
I wonder if there is any sign whether the Neanderthals are represented in the maternal or paternal DNA, or both?

The article says that more testing of human bone from 55,000 to 60,000 years ago is needed. The theory in the documentary is that Cro-Magnon would have 'taken' the women. It's fascinating because the peaks where the sphinx and other notable landmarks are located looks like a jagged, vertical stretch.

The area actually plateaus into an open space, it looks expansive though hard to judge. There have been more Neanderthal remains collected from the area than anywhere else, according to the filmmaker.
