Cro-Magnons

AMH peoples that occupied Central Europe 36-10 kya and were contemporary with the Neandertals from 36 to 29 kya (or perhaps even as recent as 24 kya). The Cro-Magnons were slightly more robust than contemporary Europeans, but otherwise identical in morphology. They possessed the Aurignacian and subsequent tool traditions; in addition to delicate stone tools, they modified and incised antlers, bone and shells, and were the people responsible for the cave art found at Lascaux and many other sites.
