Germany: Neandertal

On Tuesday I got three postcards: one from Germany and two from France

The card from Germany comes from the Neandertal. The Neandertal is a small valley of the river Düssel in the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The shape of the valley was dramatically changed by industrial quarrying during the 19th and 20th century. In 1856 the first specimen of Homo neanderthalensis was found there. Today there are a museum, an archaeological park and an art trail in the valley.
