Abstract

Neanderthals appeared the on territories of today's Europe, Middle East and west Asia around 320 000 years ago. Most of the scientists today consider that neanderthal species lived until 28 000 years ago. In the sientific world opinions on the advancement of neanderthals are divided. Paleontological findings confirmed some facts that are today widely accepted. Other facts are more difficult to prove just by the use of paleontological findings and they still cause debates among scientists. The main subject of this work is one of the most interesting topics when we talk about neanderthals, their extinction. There are many theories regarding their extinction (coldness, asimilation with modern humans, stronger UV – B irradiation, volcano eruption, competition, Hrdlička's theory). Lots of books are written about neanderthals, but not so many about causes of their extinction. To conclude what has really caused the neanderthal extinction is really hard. Extinction of neanderthals could be understood as the consequence of combination of different factors.
