Put aside everything you thought you knew about Neanderthals. Evolutionary detective Danny Vendramini’s meticulous research shows they were not docile omnivores, but savage, cannibalistic carnivores: the ‘apex predators’ of the stone age. And everything else—including humans—was their prey.
Vendramini’s Neanderthal predation theory argues that the evolution of modern humans—including our unique physiology, sexuality and human nature–is the result of systematic long-term sexual predation and cannibalism by Eurasian Neanderthals.
Neanderthal predation theory is one of those groundbreaking concepts that revolutionizes scientific thinking. It represents a quantum leap in our understanding of human origins.

“Danny Vendramini presents a truly unique and innovative picture of the role of Neandertal predation in human evolution… Vendramini pulls together countless different threads of scientific evidence to re-cast Neandertals as “apex predators”, proverbial “wolves with knives” who were effective rivals with our ancestors... It has been a long time since I read a book about human evolution that I enjoyed so much.”
Professor John Shea, Stony Brook University, New York
