Dear Shaun,

The exact range of Neandertals is still debatable but they did range from 
Europe to possibly as far east as Siberia.  Neandertal finds up until now 
have provided us with a dating of about 230,000 years ago until about 
30,000 years ago.  No finds of Neandertals have been made in the Siberian 
Permafrost.  The last Ice Age ended about 10,000 years ago. However there 
were previous Ice Ages.  Therefore, I believe that the question you pose is 
still open to debate and further finds.  For a starting point for your 
further investigation I found the following web site:

Best Wishes,
