On Wednesday, October 21, Nature Screen at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present “The Neanderthals’ Dark Secret.“ The film will be shown at 11:30 AM.
Part of the Curiosity Stream series, “The Neanderthals’ Dark Secret” takes viewers deep inside a remote system of forbidding subterranean caves in northern Spain called El Sidron, where a once-in-a-lifetime discovery of 49,000-year-old Neanderthal bones has been made.
It is within these caves that paleontologist Antonio Rosas and archaeologist Marco de la Rasilla are in their 11th year of excavation, heading up a team of scientists from across Spain in an effort to reach back in time to solve the biggest Neanderthal puzzle of them all: why we are here and Neanderthals are not.
The screening is free with museum admission.
Museumgoers are asked to purchase admission tickets online first for the museum and then to call the museum at 508-896-3867 to reserve a seat for the film. Seating is limited to 24 people.
