Archaeological and scientific evolutionary studies say Neanderthal was a species that inhabited Europe, Africa, and western Asia, starting some 2,30,000 years ago. Neanderthal man had a hyoid bone which enabled them to speak and look like humans very closely. Though some evidence of Neanderthal man were found in Indus valley civilization. As Indians follows a very long cultural tradition of burning bodies after death no matter if they were animals, finding any solid pieces of evidence of ancient times is not so easy. Besides, bones in Indian peninsula decay in a few thousands of years. This makes it even more difficult to find traces of Neanderthals man in India.
