The archeological site La Ferrassie in the French Dordogne region, is one of the most complete examples for collective burial places with regard to Homo sapiens neandertalensis.
This man is characterized by a long shaped skull but as compared to the Homo erectus from Tautavel he has lost the ape-like similarities.
Food for Homo sapiens neandertalensis (from 75 000 up to 35 000
years BP) was mostly provided by hunting, fishing and gathering, though
he domesticated fire and ate cooked foods.
