What paleontological findings allow us to distinguish the main stages and directions of the historical development of man and anthropoid apes?

Analysis of paleontological findings allows us to identify the main stages and directions of the historical development of man and anthropoid apes. These include the remains of the Australopithecus of the archanthropes (Pithecanthropus, Sinanthropus), Paleoanthropus (Neanderthal), Cro-Magnon, their tools and cave paintings. That is, humans and modern apes have a common ancestor. Further, their evolutionary development took the path of divergence (divergence of signs, accumulation of differences) in connection with adaptation to specific and different conditions of existence.
