A skeleton estimated as being 10,000 years old was found in the ‘tomb of Palli Aike’ in Tierra del Fuego in 1969-70 and has been identified as Cro-Magnon, which indicates that this race also spread to South America. Muck considers Neanderthal man as the proto-European, and Cro-Magnon a later arrival, probably from the west. He also sees the Cro-Magnons as bearing many similarities to the North American Indians, being tall, muscular, athletic and agile.

Muck produced an illustration of three skeletons to prove his point (see figure 21). European Neandeerthals, he tells us, were plump, strong-boned ‘pygmies’ averaging less than 5 fee 3 inches (1.6 metres) in height; the dwarfs and troglodytes of old European folklore. The Cro-Magnons, on the other hand, averaged 6 feet 7 inches (2 metres), which could well have given rise to the ‘giants’ referred to in Classical and biblical texts. Not all scientists agree with Muck’s measurements, but there is greater accord on the conclusion that the Neandeerthal and Cro-Magnon races existed side by side at some time in the distant past.
