Last quote by James Cole on Neanderthals

There has been much recent interest in how cooking can increase the caloric value retrieved from meat. However, given the nature of this study, it was not possible to conduct analyses on cooked human flesh. We know that modern humans have a range of complex motivations for cannibalism that extend from ritual, aggressive, and survival to dietary reasons. Why then would a hominin species such as the Neanderthals, who seem to have had varying attitudes to the burial and treatment of their dead not have an equally complex attitude towards cannibalism?feedback
