What's that flower you have on?
Could it be a faded rose
from days gone by?

I wonder how much longer the "dumb Neanderthal" faction within the anthropology community will continue denying Neanderthals had language or culture in the face of discoveries like this over the last 20 years showing they buried their dead, produced and wore body decoration, and frequently interbred with "modern" humans.

How big is this faction?

First dinosaurs covered in feathers and now neandertals? Feathers, feathers everywhere. It's like when everything in the 70s was made of macrame.

I agree. We, as a society, must rise above speciesism once and for all.

It's funny because Neanderthals didn't have souls. Lol! Jokes on them for trying to be human!

Interesting article.

I don't have any sort of knowledge of this time period, or what tools may have been used by Neanderthals, but even with the suggestion that they preferred darker colored birds, could it be that instead of the feathers (or maybe in addition to), they may have been using certain bones in the wings for precision type tools or some other utilization?

Like I said, I really do not know anything about all that, so I'm just curious. The article didn't mention whether or not bird bones had served any other purpose.

Anyone here have an idea?

Nah. Elton John didn't get into the whole glam rock thing until 1973.

THIS is early Elton John:
