Cro-Magnon fossil. Fossilised skeleton of a Cro- Magnon human from the Mondeval de Sora site in Italy. Cro-Magnons were anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) that lived in Europe from about 50,000 years ago. They are renowned for their cave paintings and the tools and ornaments that they made. It is thought that they were the direct ancestors of modern humans. Many of the bodies that have been found show signs of ceremonial burial. This specimen has been dated at around 7,000 years old.
