In recent years there are search categories that have revolutionized understanding of Neanderthals and their extinction in Eurasia. It is widely held in academic circles that Neanderthals had survived for longer than somewhere in the modern day Iberian region. However, a tool from Spain can be re-examined by a very important site that it is not a case, and it was earlier transferred to Europe before modern humans were considered before.
The Last Neanderthal Stronghold
Neanderthals was a subspecies of humankind that developed over a large area of Eurasia for thousands of years. Once considered to be primitive and thoughtful, in reality, they were very practical and successfully conformed to their harsh environment. 40,000 to 32,000 years ago they were extinct at some point. It is believed that the advent of modern humans (Homo sapiens) destroyed Neanderthals in one area from Central Asia to Western Europe. It is believed that Homo sapiens extends Neanderthals at the time of climate change – Neanderthal leads from Europe to extinction.

According to the New Scientist, "The Iberian Peninsula was the last stronghold of Neanderthals." The reason for this is that modern humans entered Europe through Eurasian steps and did not cross the narrow Streets of Gibraltar. It is believed by many researchers that modern humans reached Iberia only 35-32,000 years ago, and this meant that the Neanderthals were developed there as it had disappeared elsewhere in Eurasia. When modern humans entered Iberia, it was about 34-32,000 years ago that the Neanderthal subspecies of human beings were the last to die.
This theory is based on archaeological discoveries from the caves, especially in Gibraltar, Gourham Cave. Experts have found the Moasterian tools associated with Neanderthals, which date back to 32,000 years on these sites. However, after these dates, these caves are typically associated with modern & # 39; origins & # 39; None of the tools have been found. Iberia, the last stronghold of Neanderthals of Europe, was to give evidence to this idea.

Modern humanitarian in Iberia
However, this idea has challenged the recent findings of the famous caves in Malaga, near southeast Spain. The multinational team was making some things from the cave and they did a surprise search. Many tools, Neanderthals and Homo sapiens' characteristic of New Scientist, show that "it can be seen at the time when Neanderthal-style tools clearly provide human-style tools." They date by carbon about 43,000 years ago. This discovery can overwhelm the idea that Neanderthals exist later in modern Iberia than the rest of the continent.

If dating of the modern human beings is true, it suggests that our species have come to modern Spain and have put pressure on the previous date on the Neanderthal population. This means that about 40,000 years ago Neanderthals were killed in Iberia, based on what is known elsewhere. The results of the investigation may mean that Neanderthals failed to convince Europe 10,000 years ago. On the other hand, it may mean that two ancient human species co-exist with the millennium.

What does he say about Neanderthal extinction?
The press release of the Natural History Museum (UK) states that the evidence "revives the idea that the strabism of Gibraltar can be a potentially scattered route for early modern humans in Africa." If humans were about 42,000 years ago in southern Spain, then they suggest that they could cross the Straight of Gibraltar rather than enter Europe by Eurasia. It seems that Homo sapiens may have used coastal routes to migrate from Africa. According to the Natural History Museum, the discovery shows that "hills taken by modern humans on the site in the vicinity are not associated with the Heinrich (severe cooling) phenomenon." This suggests that ultimately the environmental change does not contribute to extinction. Neanderthals believe as much.
The closest findings in Malaga can change our humans how displaced Neanderthals by modern humans and rejecting the theory that Iberia was the last stronghold of those tribes of ancient mankind. There are some people who disagree about homo sapiens tools dating and believe Neanderthals survive in Iberia until the advent of modern Iber. However, there is also evidence that Homo sapiens were in place of Neanderthals in Spain 40,000 years ago or earlier.
