NE­OLITHIC man was more en­light­ened than mod­ern blokes, ac­cord­ing to re­search.

Ar­chae­ol­ogy ex­perts at Manch­ester Univer­sity stud­ied the burial sites of peo­ple liv­ing in the Mid­dle East 10,000 years ago.

Dr Ka­rina Coucher said: “Hu­man faces were recre­ated onto the skulls of the dead, us­ing plas­ter, and cared for at home.

“Men and women were treated equally in death and were shown equal com­pas­sion and their tasks were likely to be thought of as equal dur­ing life.

“Our bi­ases in the present were not rel­e­vant to our an­ces­tors, and are not nat­u­ral or in­her­ent be­hav­iours.”
