      Properly piecing together a rare early human skull (12,000-15,000 years old!) is a difficult task, but Robert Martin and JP Brown are pioneering the usage of medical technologies to give us a better picture of what Magdalenian Woman really looked like. Although previously referred to as "Magdalenian Girl," Field Museum Curator of Biological Anthropology, Dr. Robert Martin, has established that this specimen was likely an adult woman. Found in a cave in France in 1911, many myths and legends have been built around the story of Magdalenian Woman. One thing we do know for sure is that in 1926, Henry Field purchased the skeleton in New York City, packed it in his suitcase and returned to Chicago on a train. Since then the Field Museum has continued to learn new things about Magdalenian Woman, human culture and the world in which we live. To learn more about Magdalenian Woman, visit her at the Field Museum's currrent exhibit, "Scenes from The Stone Age: The Cave Paintings of Lascaux."
