On the morning of July 13th, 1973 I gave birth to a daughter whose back was covered with fine, dark downy hair.

Once noted, with her wrapped and in cot, I slept to dream of a family; Neanderthal parents and child standing on a slope below which was a high speed motorway. My thought on waking was of a family survived from ancient times who found themselves trapped in the modern world.

In 2010 DNA sequencing identified the presence of Neanderthal genes within human genetic history.

Nice to have my understanding confirmed.
