The chatty Neandertals wore makeup, too!

New Scientist has come out today, with an article based on some research which came out a month or so ago. This research suggested that Neandertals not only spoke, but had a language. Not only did they have a language, according to Francisco d'Errico, one of the researchers, but they used manganese oxide "crayons" to create designs on themselves or their clothes or both. Creative folk, they! But we knew that already!
