Neanderthals, Not Humans, May Have Made Cave Art in Spain
Neanderthal genes are alive and well in people of European descent. That is a well-known fact. The timeline of events is what's still being figured out.

Ancient Humans & Neanderthals Had Sex, Here's How It Changed Us Forever
Interesting info. I wonder when someone creates a clone from ancient DNA.

Bones of Love Child From Two Different Hominin Species Discovered in Cave
To put things in a proper time scale perspective:
Scientists believe that Neanderthals and Denisovans diverged from a common ancestor more than 390,000 years ago. They inhabited Eurasia until they were replaced by modern humans around 40,000 years ago — and they tended to mate with anatomically modern humans as well.

The remains of a non-human hybrid between these two groups was found and analyzed.
About 90,000 years ago, a young girl lived in the Altai Mountains, a remote range located in what is now Russia. She died when she was only 13 years old, and her bones were piled up in a cave. Those bones revealed she was the child of an unconventional couple: two now-extinct hominins, a Neanderthal and a Denisovan.

Why is this particularly interesting?
“We knew from previous research that Neanderthals and Denisovans, who were two genetically distinct groups of ancient hominins, occasionally mixed with each other,” Slon tells Inverse. “But to actually find an offspring of such mixing — that was completely unexpected.”

Political correctness probably prevents the publication of a lot of information from genetic studies. Some of it can be cleaned up for publication, in which case you must read between the lines, but a great deal of it just cannot see the light of day least there be a massive backlash. Funding sources could quickly dry up and accusations of racism would ruin careers of those who would be so intellectually honest as to dare share scientific findings with the general public.

Study finds Neanderthals didn't walk hunchback like we thought, but more upright
Actually it doesn't make sense that they would have been hunchback. That's not very efficient and besides they are so similar to humans that they were compatible for breeding purposes. So, technically although they are classified as a separate species, they were more of an overlapping species since the definition of a biologically distinct species is incapacity to produce offspring.
