Neanderthal Woman. She looks quite beautiful, I can see why Cro-Magnon men might have taken a neanderthal woman as a mate and had children, and vice versa. This doesn't offend me and the genetic evidence is real.
Cro-Magnon 1 skull This is a 32,000-year-old skull discovered in 1868 in Cro-Magnon rockshelter, Les Eyzies, France. ‘Cro-Magnon Man’ is commonly used for the modern humans that inhabited Europe from about 40,000 to 10,000 years ago. - See more at: http://australianmuseum.net.au/image/Cro-Magnon#sthash.rGElgY9l.dpuf
Since Cro Magnon was first discovered in 1868, he has presented fundamental puzzles for traditional scientists. Cro Magnon appeared abruptly in Europe and North Africa around 35,000 years ago, his culture fully developed, from no discernable origin, distinctly superior to others around him. This could be seen clearly in the nature of his tools, art work, agriculture, clothing, domesticated animals, and sea-faring capability during the last ice age.
Cro-Magnon is an informal name for the first early modern humans (early Homo sapiens sapiens) of the European Upper Paleolithic. Current scientific literature prefers the term European Early Modern Humans (EEMH), to the term Cro-Magnon which has no formal taxonomic status, as it refers neither to a species or subspecies nor to an archaeological phase or culture.The earliest known remains of Cro-Magnon-like hum
Chauvet -- The paintings there are the oldest known, carbon-dated to approximately 33,000 years ago, almost twice the age of the Lascaux cave paintings. Description from pinterest.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
Cro-Magnon: The name comes from the Abri de Cro-Magnon (French: rock shelter of Cro-Magnon, the big cave in Occitan) near the commune of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil in southwestern France, where the first specimen was found. Being the oldest known modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) in Europe, the Cro-Magnons were from the outset linked to the well-known Lascaux cave paintings and the Aurignacian culture, the remains of which were well known from southern France and Germany.
Cro-Magnon's body was generally heavy and solid with a strong musculature. The forehead was fairly straight rather than sloping like in Neanderthals, and with only slight browridges. The face was short and wide. Cro-Magnons had a prominent chin. The brain capacity was larger than the average for modern humans. However recent research suggests that the physical dimensions of so-called "Cro-Magnon" are not sufficiently different from modern humans to warrant a separate designation.

Cro-Magnon 1 Skull, 3/4 view - Discovered in 1868, Cro-Magnon 1 was among the first fossils to be recognized as belonging to our own species—Homo sapiens. This famous fossil skull is from one of several modern human skeletons found at the famous rock shelter site at Cro-Magnon, near the village of Les Eyzies, France.
