Did Homo Sapiens cause or contribute to the extinction of Neanderthal?
Neanderthal went extinct about 30,000 years ago after living in Europe and Asia for some 200,000 years.
There are many theories about why Neanderthal disappeared: climate change, failure to adapt and innovate, disease, inter-breeding with Sapiens. Do you think we homo sapiens displaced Neanderthal by killing or over-powering them or did they disappear due to other causes? What have you read or researched that leads to your conclusions?
