Neanderthal 'artwork' found in Gibraltar cave

[quote= http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-28967746]An engraving found at a cave in Gibraltar may be the most compelling evidence yet for Neanderthal art.
The pattern, which bears a passing resemblance to the grid for a game of noughts and crosses, was inscribed on a rock at the back of Gorham's Cave.
Mounting evidence suggests Neanderthals were not the brutes they were characterised as decades ago.
But art, a high expression of abstract thought, was long considered to be the exclusive preserve of our own species.

Not a nice way to refer to the UK military that's been based there Grin
And if you have visited Gibraltar you will know how extensively the caves over the years have been used by the military.

I would love if, if Neanderthals were proved that they were, very intelligent for their time
Then there would be some gob-smacked people about Tongue
