Neanderthals lost out to Homo sapiens in the battle to survive because they were not clever enough to adapt.
The results of a five-year study, to be revealed this week, will show that modern man walked the planet much earlier than was believed and Neanderthals died out much sooner than was estimated.
The brains of Neanderthals were the same size as those of modern man but more of it was used to focus on the physical needs of their larger bodies.
