Neandertals have puzzled scientists since the first Neandertal was discovered in Germany in 1856. For the past 150 years, numerous hypotheses regarding the demise of the Neandertals have been put forward. This book presents the most important of these hypotheses, their development through the history of scientific research, and how they can be related to the general research on human evolution. Why is this topic, despite the massive research undertaken the past 150 years, still dominated by diametrically opposing hypotheses, all of which base their argumentation on the same empirical record? How can the major scientific advances the past decades, seen in field such as radiometric dating and DNA analysis, help us progress even further in the quest for a higher understanding of how the fascinating Neandertals originated, lived and finally succumbed about 30 000 years ago?
