So I guess it's not really a claim that modern humans didn't get it on with archaic humans, but simply that they couldn't make babies (or not fertile ones at least)

As I understand it the Neander head is larger than the Cro-magnon head, and this raises the possibility of increased death during childbirth for mother and child.
