Discoveries in Spanish cave suggest Neanderthals had hot water and bedrooms


The finding adds to the mounting evidence that Neanderthals were a lot more sophisticated than previously thought and were at least as advanced, if not more so, than early Homo sapiens. The area identified as a bedroom in the Catalonia cave.

The rock shelter in Italy contained separate levels. The middle level contained the most traces of human occupation and seems to have been a long-term sleeping area.
