Bolomor Cave, Valencia

EXCAVATIONS at the Bolomor cave near Tavernes revealed that it was inhabited 120,000 years ago.

Archaeologists also discovered four fossilised bones and the first double-sided flint tool that has been excavated on this level of the cave.

The fragments of bones belonged to a hominid and these, together with tool, were the most important finds in recent years, said Juan Luis Arsuaga.  A lecturer at the UCM-ISCIII Centre for Human Evolution and Behaviour in Madrid, he was one of 70 experts who took part in the latest dig in a two-month campaign.

The bone fossils belong to the Bolomor cave’s fourth level, which since the 90s has yielded more than 24,000 finds.
