Neanderthals made mammoth jerky and wore tailored clothing

Published on June 23rd, 2009 | by Admin


According to a new study, Neanderthals wore tailored clothing and dried hunks of meat for easy transport.

The findings help to explain how Neanderthals could transport meat over long distances without it rotting, as well as how they survived the often chilly conditions of Northern Europe.

According to the study, Neanderthals sported “one or two layers of skins/furs and wrapped skins/furs for shoes, held together by leather strings.”
