Bones of the skull dome of children from the Suard shelter (La Chaise, Charente, France). The attribution of the human fossils of La Chaise-de-Vouthon to a defined group has always been problematic. Bones discovered in the Suard rock shelter are attributed to young children and dated to the end of isotopic stage 6. They present archaic characters associated with Neanderthal features, and allow us to know more clearly the skull development during growth in this population.
