April 14, 2001 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: http://www.neanderthal-modern.com/casiasib.htm Best Wishes, Dr. Smerken
