Richard talks to archaeologist and writer Rebecca Wragg Sykes about her all encompassing, lyrical and fascinating book, Kindred. They chat about how and when Neanderthal were discovered, the triumph of archaeology that allows us to know about their life, loves and deaths, whether a line was crossed when Homo sapiens and Neanderthals had sex, why Neanderthals died out and what Rebecca would ask if one of them showed up today.
