In this video segment from The Human Spark, host Alan Alda searches for the answer to that question at the excavation site of Roc de Marsal, a collapsed rock shelter in Southwestern France and former home to the Neanderthals. It is there where Alda discovers how the Neanderthals' inability to be innovative contributed to their extinction.
