Yahoo : Tooth scan reveals Neanderthal mobility

Paleontologists have suggested that Neanderthals are more mobile than previously thought. Analysis of a 40,000-year-old tooth found in southern Greece has supported the hypothesis.

I am inclined to support this idea. Neanderthals could have traveled farther than 12.5 miles. It sounds very logical. However, there is no way to prove because they have gone extinct more than 20,000 years ago.

My question is did Neanderthals ever travel to Asia? Or, they just remained in Europe, Middle East, and part of Asia?

Time will tell after we make more discoveries later on.
