The Brighton Museum has recreated the faces of Neanderthals and CRO-magnon
CRO-magnons were very similar to modern humans.
In the British Museum, Brighton managed to recreate the look of six ancient people, including a woman, Neanderthal, CRO-magnon and later the people of the III century BC As reported LiveSceince, using modern archaeological and forensic methods. Of particular interest was the facial reconstruction of CRO-magnon man from France — they are considered to be early representatives of Homo sapiens. CRO-magnons were almost indistinguishable from modern humans with the exception of division by race.
Modern DNA analysis techniques proved that the representatives of this subspecies was very dark skin. Ancient Briton who lived 5600 years ago, is also distinguished by dark skin. According to the forensic scientist Oscar Nilsson, “the burials of this period show that the skin of Europeans in those days were like the modern inhabitants of North Africa, even darker”.
