    So, I had a thought.

    Neanderthals, the Homo species closest to us and prior to us, lived in cold ice age environs, as well as temperate areas such as Spain and England.

    Which, imo, means they would have invented clothes, to protect from these environments.

    So, humans (modern), didn't invent the first clothing.

    How much of our Culture and Humanity, actually came from "us"?

    But is there evidence they wore clothes?

    I doubt the differences between us were especially cultural.

    That really depends on who “us” is?

    They had scrapers (to scrape hides) and awls (to punch holes in the hides so they can be laced together.) These are durable goods that don't decompose like any garment would over such a long period of time.

    I do not think Neanderthals had invented wheel or bow. They were probably 'spear', 'mace' kind of people.

    Neanderthals are our closest cousins, sort of first cousins. We have many layers of cousins, some extant, some extinct.

    We know that some had and used awls to make holes in skins, therefore it is likely they had shawls and leggings that they could bind using them.

    They probably ordered their stuff from Amazon Prime. That's my theory.

    I am sure they had their liquors. Even elephants and monkeys like that.
