The closer the timeline of life on Earth gets to the appearance of humanity, the less our ancestry is doubted among scientists, and there is virtual certainty that Homo heidelbergensis is humanity�s direct ancestor.� Their brains were nearly the size of modern humans and they inherited Acheulean tools from their ancestors and used them for hundreds of thousands of years.� There is plenty of evidence that Homo heidelbergensis migrated to Western Eurasia about 800 kya. [530] � But the re is evidence that somewhere around 500 kya that began to change; there is evidence of Homo heidelbergensis using stone-tipped spears that long ago in today�s South Africa.� Wooden throwing spears were recently discovered in today�s Germany, along with butchered horses, dated to about 400 kya. �Sci entists today are confident that Homo heidelbergensis was also the direct ancestor of Homo neanderthalensis, and the split began around 500 kya.� The range of Homo heidelbergensis was Africa, West Asia, and Europe, but the advancing and retreating ice sheets of Eurasia, Europe in particular, kept driving Homo heidelbergensis southward, and during one of the retreats, it seems that the ancestors of Neanderthals stayed.� Nean derthals became a cold-adapted species that specialized in hunting big game.� As the evidence demonstrates today, life was a brutal proposition in humanity�s early days, and was particularly harsh for Neanderthals.� They probably could not throw very well and relied on ambush predation.� Scientists have studied Neanderthal bones and compared their injuries to those of rodeo riders, but a recent study cast some doubt on that, partly in light of recent evidence that Neanderthals may have also developed wooden throwing spears.� But whether Neanderthals had to stab their prey in close quarters or eventually learned to throw weapons at them, the studies of early human bones describe a grim existence.� Breaking bones were regular events, particularly skull fractures, and that was for trauma survivors.
