Solving the mystery of Neanderthal man in the supercomputer
April 2, 2012
An agent-based simulation is set to show how Neanderthal man and modern humans struggled for survival in an inhospitable era.
Around 15,000 years after modern humans, Homo sapiens, came to Europe, Homo neanderthalensis disappeared for good. Now the supercomputer is to assess which of the current hypotheses can explain their extinction.
