The David E. Crawley Neanderthal Collection consists of a series
of high quality replicas that reveal the evolutionary process
of the Neanderthals. Due to the sheer number of excellent Neanderthal
specimens, this species is a perfect choice to show the evolutionary
process from their earliest appearance, to their eventual fate.
The David E. Crawley Neanderthal Collection showcases the history
of the Neanderthal species and reveals the ‘Accretion
Model’ of Neanderthal evolution in action.
