You have the right to remain silent

Looks like one shortcut too many over at the BBC science desk:

We may need to look again at the idea that a late Neanderthal population existed in southern Spain as recently as 35,000 years ago, a study suggests.

Scientists using a "more reliable" form of radiocarbon dating have re-assessed fossils from the region and found them to be far older than anyone thought.

We aren't, alas, querying the Neanderthals themselves but the concept that they were living down the block when we moved in.
