Models of Neanderthal males (Homo neanderthalensis). Ferrassie 1 (right) lived about 70,000 years ago and Cesaire 1 (middle), about 36,000 years ago. At left is the Roc de Marsal child, who was about 3 years old when he died, although the exact date of the specimen is unknown. These models were constructed by Elisabeth Daynes, an anthropological sculptor, from mouldings of their skulls. Their skulls were discovered at La Ferrassie, France, in 1909, St. Cesaire, France, in 1979, and Roc de Marsal cave, France, in 1969. Neanderthals were relatives of humans that lived about 150,000 to 30,000 years ago. They were stockier than modern humans and had prominent brow ridges. Photographed at the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
