In 2011 the fossil was tested and redated to at least 41,500 years old and confirmed to be Cro-Magnon, making it the earliest anatomically modern human (AMH) fossil yet discovered in Western Europe.
Though the find is too fragmentary to compare the anatomy to the Cro-Magnon find, the associated tools are Aurignacian.
The Siberian Ust'-Ishim man, dated to 45 ka, was not geographically found in Europe, and indeed is not part of the "Western Eurasian" genetic lineage, but intermediate between the Western Eurasian and East Asian lineages.
The EEMH lineage in the European Mesolithic is also known as "West European Hunter-Gatherer" (WHG).
With advancing deglaciation, after about 17 ka, finds associated with the Magdalenian, are transitional to the mesolithic hunter-gatherer (WHG) populations.
The European Mesolithic is taken to begin after about 14 ka (Azilian).
This movement was an offshoot of the rapid expansion within East Africa associated with mt DNA haplogroup L3.
Support for either hypothesis relies on accurate dating of the earliest known fossils in the region.
High-precision dating of the earliest Proto-Aurignacian sites in Europe, Riparo Mochi (Italy), Geissenklösterle (Germany), and Isturitz (France), have yielded dates of close to 42 ka, indicating that EEMH spread throughout Western Europe very rapidly.
The Aurignacian proper, the stage associated with the original Cro-Magnon find, appears to have developed within Europe. The Gravettian is the European culture immediately preceding the LGM, about 28 to 22 ka, but the early Gravettian overlaps with the later Aurignacian, from as early as 33 ka.
During the LGM proper, beginning about 22 ka, there are two main refugia, the Solutrean in Southwestern Europe, and the Epi-Gravettian in Italy and Southeastern Europe.
