This week's Science News has a wonderful article on the improving view of
Neanderthal among anthropologists. Apparently the June issue of Current
Anthropology has a lot of Neanderthal articles.

They point out that neanderthal made jewelry
They made spear points exactly like those of modern men
They hunted big game (they were not mere scavengers)
In short, they behaved exactly as their contemporaneous anatomicaly modern

The article is "Giving neandertals Their Due" Science News, 154, pp 72-74

Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
