In the late 1950s, a skeleton was discovered in a cave in Iraq that drove scientists to rethink what it means to be human. It was on of at least 9 sets of remains of Neandertals and was named Shanidar 1. The discoveries made about Shanidar 1 reveal that the Neadertals might not have been as primitive as originally thought. Part of the "Eons" series.
