Scientist Create most Accurate Reconstruction of Neanderthal Man and it Looks just like Chuck Norris
Could Chuck Norris be a distant relative of this reconstructed Neanderthal man from a skeleton that was discovered in France over a century ago?
In 1909, excavations at La Ferrassie cave in the Dordogne unearthed the remains of a group of Neanderthals. One of the skeletons in that group was that of an adult male, given the name La Ferrassie 1.
Aside from the fact that his skull is the largest and most complete ever found, the La Ferrassie 1 discovery proved that Neanderthals walked upright, contradicting previous research that we were all once a bunch of knuckle grinding apes.
We now know that Neanderthals were stocky with strong arms and hands, and that they had large skulls – longer and lower than ours – with sloping foreheads and no chin.
The reconstruction itself was performed by a multi-discipline team that was comprised of both anthropologists and model makers, for a new BBC series, Prehistoric Autopsy.
The end result is nothing short of spectacular… an incredibly accurate model of a Neanderthal man.
