RebirthStreaming Video - 2007
Approximately 30,000 years after the last Neanderthals vanished from Europe, this documentary brings them back to life. Combining computer imaging, knowledge from excavated skeletal pieces, and a meticulous sculptural process, the program showcases an astonishing physical reconstruction that embodies almost everything cumulatively known about Neanderthals-their musculature, the way they moved, even the tone and volume of their voices. Dr. John Shea of Stony Brook University explains Neanderthal hunting techniques; Dr. Ralph Holloway of Columbia University sheds light on their brain capacity; and Dr. Clive Finlayson of the Gibraltar Museum describes climate changes that may have contributed to their extinction. Many other experts are also featured.
