Caption: Stone age burial remains. Fossilised remains of a stone age (palaeolithic) human showing evidence of a ceremonial burial. This fossil, from the Cavillon cave in Liguria, Italy, is thought to be around 35,000 years old. The skeleton was buried wearing a cap of shells. At this time, the region was populated by Cro-Magnon people (Homo sapiens sapiens). These people were anatomically modern, and are thought to be the direct ancestors of modern humans.
