The Neanderthal man was an ancient species of human that lived in Europe and parts of Asia during the Pleistocene epoch. They may have been our closest relatives and were one of the first species to use tools. Neanderthals are thought to have gone extinct around 40,000 years ago, although some evidence suggests that they may have interbred with modern humans.
At Evolution Park, visitors will get to learn about the Neanderthal man as a species, and how they may have interacted with early humans. The park will feature life-size models of Neanderthals, replicas of the tools they used, and interactive displays that allow visitors to explore the Neanderthal's lifestyle. Artifacts from their culture will also be on display, such as stone tools and jewelry. Visitors will also be able to view a model of a Neanderthal cave, and learn about the various theories surrounding their extinction.
