When humans (homo sapiens) came to central Europe some 54,000 years ago, they encountered other humans: Cro-Magnons. It was thought by some that these “other humans” were killed off by the newly arrived Homo Sapiens, but through DNA evidence it is now thought they simply coupled with one another and were absorbed. Further study shows they had a larger brain cavity than Homo-Sapiens. The physical statures were somewhat different, with Cro-Magnons shorter but more muscular than Homo-Sapiens.
