Comparing Combe-Capelle Skulls with the "Archaic" Maritime Archaic of North America

Comparing Combe-Capelle Skulls with the "Archaic" Maritime Archaic of North America


The Combe Capelle skull was discovered in France and is dated to about 7,500 B.C.  It has been labeled as Cro Magnon.  The same Archaic features can be found within the Maritime Archaic skulls from Northern Germany, Denmark to North America.  The Maritime Archaic migrated from the coastal regions to the Great Lakes.  Their skulls are easily recognized by the protruding brow ridge and sloping forehead. Skull on the left was uncovered in Wisconsin, the skull to the right is Combe-Capelle.
