Craniums from Australopithecus to Cro-Magnon. Mouldings of hominid craniums spanning nearly 4 million years of human evolution. Australopithecus afarensis (between approximately 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago) and Australopithecus africanus (between approximately 3.3 and 2.4 million years ago) are among the most famous extinct hominids. Cro-Magnon (Homo sapiens sapiens) is a term used to refer to the earliest examples of modern humans living in Europe between about 40,000 and 10,000 years ago. They were anatomically similar to modern humans, although slightly more robust and with a larger brain capacity. They used flint tools, and also made paintings, sculptures, carvings and music.
