  • Neanderthals at Atapuerca: Oldest Neanderthal Remains in the Whole Iberian Peninsula

    By Alton Parrish (Reporter)

    The CENIEH researcher Adrian Pablos has led the study of a Neanderthal fossil found in the Galería de las Estatuas site. This is a phalanx whose chronology makes it one of the oldest remains of this species in the whole of the Iberian Peninsula

    A study has just been published in the journal American Journal of Physical Anthropology, headed by Adrián Pablos, a researcher at the Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana (CENIEH), which shows the taxonomic affinity with Neanderthals of a foot phalanx found at the Galería de las Estatuas site in the Sierra de Atapuerca (Burgos).

    The chronology of the levels where the phalanx was recovered, about 100,000 years old, makes it one of the oldest Neanderthal remains in the whole Iberian Peninsula
