Neanderthals Made High-End Handbags

Neanderthal Bone Tools
I always suspected that Neanderthals were makers of luxury handbags.



Neanderthals made leather-working tools like those in use today

Archaic humans may have invented bone implements still used to make expensive handbags.

Excavations of Neanderthal sites more than 40,000 years old have uncovered a kind of tool that leather workers still use to make hides more lustrous and water resistant. The bone tools, known as lissoirs, had previously been associated only with modern humans. The latest finds indicate that Neanderthals and modern humans might have invented the tools independently.
