Neanderthals Burial Cites
"Most anthropologists recognize burial as a very human, and a very religious, act. But the strongest evidence that Neanderthals were fully human and of our species is that at four sites Neanderthals and modern humans were buried together."
Marvin Lubenow, "Recovery of Neanderthal mtDNA: An Evaluation," Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal, 1998 p.89.
"Analysis of Neanderthal DNA failed to demonstrate any significance from DNA of modern humans."
