Face Of Neanderthal Woman Reconstructed

Scientists have recreated the face of a 75,000-year-old Neanderthal woman - one of our closest evolutionary cousins. 

The 3D model is based on the flattened, shattered remains of a skull whose bones were so soft when excavated they had the consistency of "a well-dunked biscuit".

The skull was found in Shanidar Cave in Iraqi Kurdistan, where the remains of 10 Neanderthal men, women and children were previously unearthed.
