Bioanthropological study 

Nowadays, the molecular studies of H. neanderthalensis that are using the mtDNA(Krings et al,1997, krings et al,1999) and genomic DNA (Richard et al, 2006, James et al, 2006)  indicate that they had been diverged from the common ancestor with H. sapience about 380,000 years ago .
