Neanderthals: the other other white meat?

The Guardian has a report on tool marks found on Neanderthal bones that one archaeologist argues is evidence that we used them for barbeque. While the tool marks are inconclusive as to the final fate of the flesh from the bones, it does provide some evidence that Neanderthals and Humans were interacting in at least some fashion. I always find it an interesting thought that we were not always alone on the planet when it came to (arguably) concious beings.
