Last of the Neanderthals?

I’m in the middle of writing a paper at the moment so I won’t describe this article at length here. Briefly, this fascinating piece in ABC Science suggests that the (or at least one of the) last refuges of the Neanderthal may have been discovered. I will tentatively add something here; given the recent discovery of Denisova in a relatively proximal part of the world, how sure are we that these tools were made by what we would traditionally call Neanderthal?
