Missed by a blink of time

This gentleman looks down from a gallery of a museum in Germany.



Looks fairly ordinary, a bit craggy....

But he's actually more unusual than you might think.

Adult female Neanderthal skull

In the top photograph, it's not obvious, but our guy has a slightly different skull to modern humans.

Sadly we missed meeting these folk by around 40,000 years, a tiny blink of time in the history of the Earth.
