The skull was unlike anything seen before, having a flattened cranium with a heavy brow ridge above large eye sockets.Nearby, workers also uncovered an assortment of thick and heavily fossilized bones.So by measuring carbon 14 levels in an organism that died long ago, researchers can figure out when it died.
Carbon is also the key ingredient for most life on Earth; the pigment that made the first tattoos; and the basis for technological marvels such as graphene, which is a material stronger than steel and more flexible than rubber.
There are two techniques for dating in archaeological sites: relative and absolute dating.
Relative dating stems from the idea that something is younger or older relative to something else.
A speculative research paper examining current evidence available on Neanderthal man with comparison to references in early manuscripts of the Nephilim an ancient race of half-breed humans.
The argument is presented that the scientific facts verify that the Neanderthal were in fact one and the same as the ancient warrior race Neanderthal man has become an enigma to science once being hailed as the proof of the evolution of apes to modern man.
When more finds came to light with what also appeared to be rickets, it was considered far too much of a coincidence and for lack of any other explanation they became relegated to a sub-human category.
