Crimea Neanderthalers supposed to be aware of symbolism

An international research team has analyzed an item discovered previously in a cave Kiik-Koba in Crimea. According to the conclusion, a small piece of stone holds intentionally made cuts with symbolic meaning. In a layer where the finding has been discovered, the traces of the presence of Neanderthals have also been found. Hence, the newly digged artifact might evidence on the presence of a vision of symbolism. The respective article was published in the PLOS ONE.

The finding referred to above is a small piece of stone with soft chalk «skin» on one side. The artifact is quite tiny, about 3.5 centimeters long, and has no traces of usage in everyday life. It has 12 marks of cuts.

The researchers suppose that the cuts have been done intentionally. The stone has been found in the layer IV and dated by a period 35 486−37 026 years ago. Previously, the traces of Neanderthal graves were found in the same layer. There were no traces of the presence of human of the modern type in Crimea at that time.
