The article reports on the discovery in science made by a team of researchers which include the University of Exeter, Southern Methodist University, Texas State University, and the Think Computer Corp. Based on the result of the research, the scientists concluded that early stone tool technologies developed by Homo sapiens were no more efficient than those used by Neanderthals. This discovery is a response to the theory that Neanderthals became extinct because they were less intelligent than Homo sapiens.
