Neanderthals built homes out of mammoth bones

New research indicates that Neanderthals built homes out of mammoth bones.

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a 44,000-year-old Neand-erthal building that was constructed using the bones from mammoths. The circular building, which was up to 26 feet across at its widest point, is believed to be earliest example of domestic dwelling built from bone.
Neanderthals, which died out around 30,000 years ago, were initially thought to have been relatively primitive nomads that lived in natural caves for shelter.
