About This Project
The Iberian Peninsula is rich in Pleistocene fossils, but there is a fossil hiatus at the Lower Iberian Plateau. Instead of a real bias, it is possible that the eminently agricultural use of this land (e.g. Castilla provinces) has erased potential outdoor deposits. In this context, we aim to excavate for the first time the Cueva del Toril (Ciudad Real, Lower Plateau), which present fossil remains that could help fill this knowledge gap.
