Ok if they were not and had no complex like ours lang, can anubody tell
me (I am a hobbyst and not an expert) WHY not only did they have burrials
(how did they get to that stage) but also why were they found with the
tools of cromagnon(?). What would make them realise the value of these
tools? Do we find the use of other species' tools and do others value ours?
