Neanderthals were actually members of an ancient human group that emerged at least 200,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene era. Neanderthals ranged across Eurasia from the Atlantic regions of Europe east to Central Asia and as far north as present-day Belgium and as far south as the Mediterranean Sea and southwest Asia. This group is believed to be a remarkable example of human adaptation. The Nobel Prize in Medicine was the second award in Svante Pääbo’s family. Pääbo’s father, Sune Bjergström, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1982.
