They find the remains of a 60,000-year-old Neanderthal skull in a Catalan site

Those responsible for the excavations of the archaeological site of the Abric Romaní de Capellades (Barcelona) have announced this Thursday that in this summer’s campaign they have found an “exceptional find”: the partial remains of a 60,000-year-old Neanderthal skull.

After more than 40 years of research at this site by a team led by the Professor of Prehistory at the Rovira i Virgili University of Tarragona, Eudald Carbonell, Neanderthal human remains have been found for the first time.

This fact will mean that the Abric Romaní is placed on “the podium of the most important archaeological sites in the world to learn about the social and cultural behavior of the Neanderthals”.
