Your project sounds very interesting.  You appear to be mostly interested
in scientific representations.  If you decide to look at popular
representations of Neanderthals, I would certainly suggest reviewing Gary
Larsen's use of "cave men" in his Far Side cartoons.  They tend to play on
the ambiguity of Neanderthals as "like us" and "different".
