teethPoland, Feb 2, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Scientists and archaeologists all over the world have made several efforts to discover the fossils of the primitive times so that they can understand the evolution in a better manner. Recently a group of Polish scientists have claimed to have found three teeth of the Neanderthal age from the Stajna Cave that is located in the northern side of the Carpathian Mountains. The unearthing of three Neanderthal teeth in one of the caves of Poland is expected to shed some light on the structural similarities that our ancestors had with us.

As per the reports, the team of Polish scientists, led by Mikolaj Urbanowski, have claimed that they have discovered the earliest remains of the Neanderthals in the country. It has been reported that bones and flint tools of woolly rhinoceros and woolly mammoth were also unearthed along with the Neanderthal teeth. Both the animals have become extinct now and it is expected that these fossils will help them know more about life at that time. Reports indicate that researchers have also found hammers that were made from the bones and antler of reindeer. These have provided them with some clue of the food habits as well as the lifestyle of the Neanderthals.

The recent findings of the scientists are considered to be a great achievement and will throw light on the life of the Neanderthal age. The scientists consider that the Neanderthals were excellent hunters. The group of scientists have found some valuable information about the Neanderthals and to let people know more on these findings, the information have been published on “Naturwissenschaften”, a science journal of Germany.
