My main interest is where and when did it begin and what influence did it have on the eventual rise of civilization. These are not one-offs, or curiosities, but part and parcel of the ancient word-a phenomenon of sorts, that strangely gets ignored.

Cro-Magnon's distinctiveness for various reasons, some having nothing to do with science, has been marginalized over the years, but in my view the facts are still there. He was different in notable ways, both physically and behaviorally, and in reality the catalyst behind humans becoming who we are today.

Good question.

I have not read it but you reminded me I need to order it, so I just did. I will take it for what it is worth namely a source of information to lead me to primary or credible secondary sources for verification.

> Very interesting posts, thank you.

You are welcome. Thank you for reading.
