Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis also Neandertals or Neandert(h)alers, German: Neandertaler Homo neanderthalensis or Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, are an extinct species or subspecies of archaic humans who lived in Eurasia until about 40,000 years ago.

Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis probably went extinct due to competition with or extermination by immigrating modern humans or due to great climatic change, disease, or a combination of these factors

Neanderthal or Homo neanderthalensis technology is thought to have been quite sophisticated. It includes the Mousterian stone tool industry and the abilities to create fire and build cave hearths, make the adhesive birch bark tar, craft simple clothes similar to blankets and ponchos, go seafaring through the Mediterranean, make use of medicinal plants as well as treat severe injuries, and use various cooking techniques, such as roasting and smoking.

Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis made use of a wide array of food, mainly hoofed mammals, but also other megafauna, plants, small mammals, birds, and marine resources.

Though Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis were likely apex predators, they still competed with cave bears, cave lions, cave hyaenas, and other large predators.

A few examples of Paleolithic art have been controversially attributed to Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis, most famously Spanish cave paintings contentiously dated to before 65 kya and the Divje Babe Flute.

Some claims of religious beliefs have been made. Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis were capable of speech, though it is unclear how complex their language was.
