Lieberman discusses Neanderthals on ‘NOVA’

Daniel E. Lieberman, professor of biological anthropology, lends his expertise on human evolution and skeletal data to public television’s “NOVA” on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 8 p.m. (locally on WGBH/ Channel 2). In a program called “Neanderthals on Trial,” Lieberman discusses some of his research on the face and skull shape of Neanderthals that may – or may not – provide the genetic link between them and modern humans.
