The Neandertals: Of Skeletons, Scientists, and Scandal by Erik Trinkaus

Character description

Amédée and his brother, Jean, ten years younger, were both Abbes and members of a "modernist movement to reconcile faith and science.   Their hobby was searching for prehistoric tools.  They searched Bouffia Bonneval, a cave outsied La Chapelle-aux-Saints, France,and discovered a remarkablyl complete Neandertal skeleton in 1908. The remains were first studied by Marcellin Boule, whose reconstruction of Neanderthal anatomy based on la Chapelle-aux-Saints material shaped popular perceptions of the Neanderthals for over thirty years. The La Chapelle-aux-Saints specimen is typical of 'classic' Western European Neanderthal anatomy. It is estimated to be about 60,000 years old.
