New research confirms an identity between an exclusively Neanderthal community and the last archaeological cultures of Europe at the time of modern human-Neanderthal transition (the Châtelperronian), before the first archaeological culture in of most Europe definitely linked to modern humans alone (the Aurignacian).
This makes it possible to use stone tool relics to identify when and where Neanderthals were present and when and where the first modern humans were present at this critical transition moment, without having to rely on far more scarce skeletal remains, extending the scope of precision archaeology.
I would not use the term "pots" certainly nor it seems to be that the new research authoritatively establishes what you say. It just confirms the mainstream theory on who made the Chatelperronian - always as far as we can tell. IF there was an exceptional case in which Chatelperronian was made by Homo sapiens or whoever, we would not probably be able to tell.
"IF there was an exceptional case in which Chatelperronian was made by Homo sapiens or whoever, we would not probably be able to tell".
True. Technology has never been a good indicator of human species, as I keep trying to tell you.
