The passage below is Quoted from: http://sci.tech−archive.net/Archive/sci.archaeology/2008−06/msg00169.html. To me it sounds a bit like the Ramayana war with Men, Vanaras (Monkey like humans) and Jambavan (Bear like humans).
“The recent discoveries shed light on Paleolithic life in ancient Europe and push back the invention of the bow and arrow in Africa by at least 20,000 years. They paint a picture nearly as vivid as a scene from The Lord of the Rings , with modern humans, Neanderthals and archaic humans all struggling for survival with their various favoured weapons in hand.”
