 Cro-Magnon quite distinct species
The neat graph from ape to Cro-Magnon is not so neat and lacks
alot of evidence of the stages from neanderthal sized skulls which have
no forehead to the massive forehead of Cro-Magnon. The time
period to accomplish this seems to be very small indeed and
one wonders.

Only if you assume that Neanderthals evolved into modern humans.
However, we have modern human remains at Qafzeh and Skhul which are of
the same age (i.e. c. 120 ka) as the oldest unequivocal Neanderthals
(Krapina and Saccopastore).

And the suggestion from the DNA that the split was about 600KYA.

Hi Doug,

I know a number of people would be interested in a reference for that...

The dates here are not the same as mine above:

http://2think.org/neanderthaldna.shtml

My dates come from an earlier report, which you can read about here:

http://anthropology.about.com/science/anthropology/library/weekly/aa0...

That's probably a good start.
