In a rare discovery, the remains of a 200,000 year old Neanderthal has been discovered in Normandy, France.
The bones unearthed include a humerus, ulna and radius, and have been aged as being a late adolescent or young adult. The sex of the remains are still unknown.
The bones are linked to the Neanderthal lineage around the Middle Pleistocene era (236,000 and 183,000 years old).
Discoveries of this nature are extremely rare, and this only the second such recorded find in France.
The finding was published in the journal PLOS ONE
