Auel , ambientati all'incirca Il ciclo narra le avventure di Ayla , una donna Cro-Magnon che, orfana, viene allevata da un gruppo di Neanderthal. Nel complesso, la serie costituisce un romanzo di formazione. Nonostante poi gli elementi di pura fantasia i protagonisti sono di fatto gli sviluppatori di tutte le prime tecnologie umane, come la pietra focaia , l' addomesticazione degli animali selvatici, il propulsore per le lance e nonostante la trama a tratti decisamente rosa , presenta spunti interessanti riguardanti la botanica , la fitoterapia e l' erboristeria , l' antropologia e l' archeologia. Su questi ultimi aspetti, l'autrice sembra sposare la teoria della possibile commistione Neanderthal-Cromagnon, teoria dibattuta da un punto di vista paleoantropologico per tutto il XX secolo e affrontata a livello genetico negli anni duemila dal Max Planck Institute di Lipsia.

It is definitely appropriate for a teen. Tigress Warrior Elf Goodreads is not a site for reading books. You still have to get books from the library, bookstore, Amazon, etc. Is there any anthropological research behind this books or it is totally fictional?

For e …more She did do research when writing her novels however there were some things she wrote that were later found to be untrue in the pre-historic era. For example, the Neanderthals in "Clan of the Cave Bear" spoke in grunt and sign language they weren't able to make speech but it was discovered that Neanderthals most likely could talk and communicate in speech and not noise this was found years later after the book was published Another thing is the appearance of Ayla, having a fair complexion, blue eyes and blonde hair.
I've read in research that Cro-Magnans would have likely had a darker complexion and hair. I am not sure. The Neanderthals in "Clan of the Cave Bear" were quite smart, however, able to understand medicine, basic hunting, cooking, counting, making clothes etc. As the previous responded stated this isn't a book one should take to heart on whether is true or not, I still come across articles, reports etc.
It is still a very good book and is close to what they would have lived back then how the media use to portray them. Are the locations in this book real? Is there a cave with neanderthal findings in the Crimea? Shanelle Many of them are.

There was an enormous amount of anthropological research that went into the writing of this series, and although all of the events and individual people are of course fiction, much of it is based on real archaeological evidence with creative license applied in some cases.
Here is a link with some of the research that went into the series. There isn't much specific to Clan of the Cave Bear, since the story takes place almost entirely in one location, but if you read the rest of the books I think you'll find it very interesting. Ya'll so far the environment of the book is incredibly believable not to mention insane!
