Subsequently many such fossils were known from France, Italy and middle East. All such fossils exhibited reduced brow ridges, steep forehead, high rounded cranial vault, short face and pronounced chin. Being bulky, they were not as tall as Neanderthalers. Structurally the Cromagnon man had a lot of resemblance to modern Europeans. It appears that the stone implements of Cromagnon's man had a high technological perfection. One could obtain in fossils long thin blades of various types.

Further, Cromagnons had a taste for art. They made beads, carved statues and even engraved pictures. The cave paintings made by these men are a record of their aesthetic sense. Their burials were ceremonial and gave an indication of their cultured life. It could be said that with the appearance of Crornagnon, the modern human, the morphological evolution of humans is more or less complete and any further progress is relate8 to culture and language. We shall be looking into the details of this aspect in our next unit. Nevertheless, we briefly outline here some of the important landmarks in the human progress.

A significant shift in the pattern of the human activity has occurred beginning about 10,000 years ago. This shift manifested itself in various aspects of his life. For instance, there was a shift from hunting and gathering to agriculture. There was a shift in the tool making process also. From the paleolithic age which was marked by making stone tools, he began to make his implements first in bronze and then in iron.

And beginning 5,000 years ago special occupations developed, the cities began to be formed and the development of various aspects of culture such as writing, history, wealth, leisure, science and arts took place. This can briefly be the evolution of modern humans.
