Origins of Stone Age Peoples: Neanderthals & Homo heidelbergensis

The precursors of modern man (Homo sapiens) are scientifically known as Homo heidelbergensis and Homo neanderthalensis. But why are Stone Age peoples named after a German city on the Neckar River and a valley near Düsseldorf in the Rhineland? Were our ancestors actually of Germanic origin? What is the story behind these names? This free taster will provide a brief overview of the origins of Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic humans and the research history which led to the naming convention used today.
