Saratov Neanderthal Man Might Rewrite History

Archeological finds on the Khoroshevsky Island near the town of Khvalynsk, presently submerged in waters of the Saratov Reservoir may possibly rewrite the history of the Neanderthals.
      According to archeologists, the human remains, namely two incomplete calvariums and a fragment of a shoulder bone, discovered in the Middle Volga Region back in the early 20th century could have belonged to one of the human species that preceded the modern man, for example, the Neanderthals. It remains an enigma when those representatives of the homo family had appeared here.
      The remains were found in the 1920s by an outstanding Russian geologist, Academician Alexei Pavlov and were kept afterwards in a Geological Museum's collection. However, due to a certain concourse of circumstances, they have not been thoroughly studied so far.
