Neanderthal tribes living in what is now the Netherlands in the late Pleistocene, about 250,000 years ago, were able to turn red iron oxide, hematite, into ochre pigment, which they could use for painting on prepared animal skins, Dutch and Spanish archaeologists reported in a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
