The new discovery helps to shed new light on the migratory movements of the Neanderthal people.
Discovery adds to the mystery and legends surrounding Castle Olsztyn.
The excavations carried out at the castle in Olsztyn and the hill it stands on shed fascinating light on Neanderthal life thousands of years ago.
The find in southern Poland appears to challenge existing beliefs about how the Neanderthals used open spaces. Scientists thought that Neanderthals living outside caves rarely settled there for long, at least not until later, alongside homo sapiens. For this reason, they rarely left behind larger numbers of tools.
