Neanderthals were first European painters, says research

UK/ Spain, Mar 08 (ANI): It appears that archaic humans Neanderthal who got extinct 40,000 years ago were the first painters on the planet, according to the researchers from UK, Germany, Spain and France proving their art was here 20,000 years before us. The researchers found Uranium-thorium dating pinpointing the age of tiny calcium carbonate deposits on top of the artwork at 64,000 years old, making the dots and lines by Neanderthal oldest in Europe.

Homo-sapiens and Neanderthals never co-existed but the finding can tell us more about evolution of our brain.
