Cro-Magnon, race of primitive humans (Homo sapiens), indistinguishable biologically from modern human beings. Remains dating from the upper Paleolithic era (40,000–35,000 years ago) were first found in southern France. Cro-Magnon people, like the Neanderthals who preceded them, had high foreheads, developed chins and large brains, and stood erect (males about 6 ft/180 cm). Their advanced culture produced ivory jewelry, bone and flint tools, and sophisticated cave art (especially rock carvings and paintings).
