Cro-Magnon (France)

Fossil remains of several individuals, best known as "Le Villard" (Cro-Magnon 1), type specimen of a so-called "Cro-Magnon race" within contemporary typological classifications of those times

The fossils have been described by Vacher de Lapouge as H. spelaeus but are fully modern Upper Paleolithic humans. The association of the "Cro-Magnon"-Type with an (evolved) Augrinacien and an extinct Pleistocene fauna was essential for the acceptance of a human antiquity
