Heres an interesting animation of Europe's progression ( if thats even the correct word ) since 400 BC.

I think its fair to say its been a blood bath .

Older more primative peoples like neanderthal were probably to some degree subsumed into the population as opposed to being systematically tied to a stake and burnt ,  many modern humans have a heavier bone structure or a protruding brow maybe indicating an ancestral link to our long lost cousins .

Very interesting, thanks!

It is however not scientific to call Neanderthals "more primitive". Evovlution is not a linear progression from primitive to more advanced. Instead it does simply favour whichever organism is more adapted to its environment. There's evidence to fuel speculation that they might have actually been better skilled at certain tasks than homo sapiens.

There's no evidence they were "systematically tied to a stake and burnt" (what a waste of resources), but there is evidence of Neanderthal DNA in modern day humans.

It is overly simplistic to assume this shows in "protruding brows" or a "heavier bone structure", though.

Here's a good rundown of what we currently know:
