Join Dr. Bruce Latimer as he explains what was found in a subterranean cave in Israel. Below the ground’s surface in this Israeli cave are hundreds of thousands of years of remains that can provide valuable insights into the development of the human face and teeth. The site includes skeletal remains, including a 58,000-year-old partial skull, along with tools and other revelatory debris reaching back up to 200,000 years. Throughout the cave lies hint after hint about how the Neanderthals lived and about their dramatically different facial and dental structures compared to modern humans. A person’s craniofacial structure has health implications, as it fundamentally influences our lives, down to how we eat and breathe. It also has implications for the interrupted breathing in sleep apnea and obstruction that causes choking.
