The Oase 1 mandible was discovered on February 16, 2002.
A nearly complete skull of a young male Oase 2 and fragments of another cranium (Oase 3) were found in 2005, again with mosaic features; some of these are paralleled in the Oase 1 mandible.
The Peștera Muierilor (Women's Cave) find is a single, fairly complete cranium of a woman with rugged facial traits and otherwise modern skull features, found in a lower gallery of "The Women's Cave" in Romania, among numerous cave bear remains.
Radiocarbon dating yielded an age of 30,150 ± 800 years, making it one of the oldest Cro-Magnon finds. Compared to Neanderthals, the skeletons showed the same high forehead, upright posture and slender (gracile) skeleton as modern humans.
The other specimens from the site are a female, Cro-Magnon 2, and male remains, Cro-Magnon 3.
Associated finds were red ochre anointing, a mammoth skull, and personal decorations suggesting shamanism or other religious practice.The modern attributes place it close to European early modern humans among Late Pleistocene samples.The fossil is one of the few finds in Europe that could be directly dated, and is at least 37,800 years old.Similar specimens were subsequently discovered in other parts of Europe and neighboring areas.
In November 2011, tests were conducted at the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit in England on what were previously thought to be Neanderthal baby teeth, which had been unearthed in 1964 from the Grotta del Cavallo in Italy.
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 northwestern Europe.
