Perhaps one must be a “clairvoyant of the small” (to borrow a phrase from Robert Walser, the Swiss writer who spent his final years obsessively filling scraps of paper with microscopic writing) fully to appreciate the remarkable life and astonishing graphic creations of Matthias Buchinger, who was born without hands or feet in Nuremberg in 1674 and never grew beyond the height of twenty-nine inches.

The Neandertal storyline for the period from 70,000 to 40,000 years ago is increasingly a story of unremitting introgression from Neandertals into other populations wherever they met. Partial ancient genomes from Oase and ‘Ust Ishim show evidence for Neandertal introgression between 60,000 and 45,000 years ago in multiple events; the Denisova genome shows evidence for Neandertal introgression, and of course different legacies of ancient introgression from Neandertals can be found in western and eastern Eurasian populations today.
