    Human Stabbed a Neanderthal, Evidence Suggests

    Source: LiveScience (7-21-09)
    Newly analyzed remains suggest that a modern human killed a Neanderthal man in what is now Iraq between 50,000 and 75,000 years ago. The finding is scant but tantalizing evidence for a theory that modern humans helped to kill off the Neanderthals.

    The probable weapon of choice: A thrown spear.
    The evidence: A lethal wound on the remains of a Neanderthal skeleton.

    The victim: A 40- to 50-year-old male, now called Shanidar 3, with signs of arthritis and a sharp, deep slice in his left ninth rib.

    "What we've got is a rib injury, with any number of scenarios that could explain it," said study researcher Steven Churchill, an associate professor of evolutionary anthropology at Duke University in North Carolina. "We're not suggesting there was a blitzkrieg, with modern humans marching across the land and executing the Neandertals [aka Neanderthals]. I want to say that loud and clear."

    Early example of a racist murder, eh? I sincerely hope he was charged not too mildly, and dealt a high sentence, perhaps the death penalty for this "Racially Aggravated Assault Ending In Excessively Grievous Bodily Harm, Namely Death"!
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    No it wasn't a blietzkrieg. Our ancestors migrated into the Neanderthal lands enriching the local culture and improving the local economy. It was a vibrant multicultural culture that existed for thousands of years.
