The term Cro-Magnon refers to one of the main types of early modern humans of the European Upper Paleolithic. Current dating of Cro-Magnon bones point to more recent date 30,000 years. Earliest known remains of Cro-Magnon like humans are dated to 17,000 radiocarbon years. The name is taken from the cave of Crô-Magnon in southwest France, where the first specimen was discovered.
