It was not until the mid-1970s that the Field Museum [of Natural History in Chicago] removed their old display of the apish Neandertals and replaced them with the tall, erect Neandertals that are there today. What did they do with the old display? Did they throw it on the trash heap where it belonged? No. They moved the old display to the second floor and placed it right next to the huge Apatosaurus dinosaur skeleton where more people than ever—especially children—would see it. They labeled it “An alternate view of Neandertal.” It was not an alternate view. It was a wrong view. So much for the self-correcting mechanism in science as far as Neandertal is concerned.
