Caption: Neanderthal (left) and Cro-Magnon (right) models. This Cro-Magnon (early modern human, Homo sapiens) is based on 17,000-year-old fossils from Chancelade, south-western France (1888). The Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis) is based on 60,000-year-old fossils from Chapelle-aux-Saints, France (1909). Neanderthals, shorter and stockier than modern humans, first appeared in Europe around 600,000 years ago, co-existing when modern humans appeared 200,000 years ago. By around 30,000 years ago, no Neanderthals remained. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
