With revelations such as our ancestors interbreeding with Neanderthals; that most of us have up to 4% Neanderthal DNA; and that Tibetans have a gene that helps them live high up in the mountains because their ancestors interbred with an ancient human species; Ella discusses who the Neanderthals were and what makes us different from them… and what makes us the same.

Just one of the programme of talks taking place during the Festival of Archaeology, 13 and 14 July 2019.
