Neanderthal: Source Info on estimated # of fossil remains
The list I am working with will focus on the Neanderthals both classic and more gracile that date from 30 - 200 kya.
I normally don't surf wikipedia for material but the resource works well enough for getting lists and references. This list is a good start point for some information but is not providing the quantity of materials collected at each site.
I would greatly appreciate any recommendations of books or online sources that catalog this information. If this project goes well I will start a blog and post this map online for others to use.

Good Luck finding online resources for this type of data - I don't suspect you will find much. This is one that may take old fashioned library work - digging out the references on each site and going to the tables to count - You may also want to try contacting labs/people that have already been working with Neanders and aske them for references. Don't be afraid to ask - some folks will be too busy (or self important) to respond, but you may be pleasantly surprised at how many folks are willing to provide guidance - and who may even be very interested in seeing your results for thier own research uses. If you can sell them on this being a tool you are willing to share when done, you may get some great responses.

I have and read Stringer's In Search of the Neanderthals book but I do not remember the tables with documented finds.
If I come up with something nice and useful I will post it as a tool or series of graphics.
