Neanderthal Woman

Neanderthal woman has a name - Wilma. Yes, after that other famous "cave-woman".

From The Mail Online:
"The model has been nicknamed Wilma after she was found to have red-hair like the Flintstones character.

The findings had suggested that at least some Neanderthals would have had red hair, pale skin, and possibly freckles.

Created for an October 2008 National Geographic magazine article, Wilma has a skeleton made from replicas of pelvis and skull bones from Neanderthal females."
