Additional Content

The very young date provided by Schwarcz et al. has been criticised by several authors (Millard & Pike 1999; Alperson et al. 2000). In contrast to this, the recent ESR-dates of Grün and Stringer (2000) confirm an age of more than 100 000 BP, which supports the assumption that Neanderthals and modern humans co-existed in the Near East.
