7. They Loved to Cook
Prometheus was said to have stolen fire from the gods to give to humanity, like some kind of pyromaniac Robin Hood. Well, if that's true, than Prometheus also dropped by Neanderthal territory for some tutorials in fire safety. Neanderthals were well suited to the European cold, sure, but even they needed to warm up around some flames now and again. They also clearly used fire to cook, and though they mostly ate meat, they also enjoyed dining on roasted veggies. Nom nom.
