Caption: Cro-Magnon 1 fossil skull. Side view of the skull of fossil Cro-Magnon 1 man Homo sapiens, known also as early modern humans. The skull shows many features of modern-day people, with high forehead, large head and a brain-size bigger than the modern average. Skeletal remains show that Cro-Magnons were quite strongly built in the body, with long legs. The bones found are invariably associated with upper Palaeolithic items such as blade tools, bone, antler and ivory workings. Cro-Magnons produced engravings and sculptures. As hunter- gatherers, early modern humans ranged across western Asia and Africa from about 130,000 to 60,000 years ago.
