Neanderthals, the closest relatives of humans, became extinct about 40,000 years ago. Although theories include the inability to adapt to climate change and increased competition from modern humans, it is unclear what killed them.

Taking into account other traces previously found in the same area, a total of 11 people are in the Grota Quarterly, which has been “confirmed by Neanderthals as one of the most important places in the world in human history,” the ministry said.

“They were all adults, and may have been in his teens,” Francesco Di Mario, head of the Crota Quarry excavations, said in the statement.

Remains of an animal have also been found, including a large boa constrictor that has become extinct.
