Created in collaboration with the Neanderthal Museum of Mettmann (Germany) this suggestive and highly educational exhibition showcases the most recent scientific discoveries about Neanderthals through the true-life story of a Neanderthal woman named Edmèe from Gibraltar.
The existence of this Ice Age woman is a fascinating story. It begins with her origins and the environment in which she lived. Her daily activities necessary for survival are investigated, focusing on diet, clothing, tools and other ornamental objects commonly used by Neanderthals. Peculiar burial practices and rituals are also explored. Created in collaboration with Contemoranea Progetti.
