TRAVELLING WITH DEATHREVOL: VALENCIA (SPAIN)

The Mediterranean region is especially rich in paleoanthropological records. In particular, the Valencian community has some interesting sites whose fossils are in the Prehistory Museum of Valencia and DEATHREVOL is already analyzing them. Neanderthal fossils have been recovered in different sites such as Bolomor, Cova Negra and Foradada. More modern chronologies, bone remains of Paleolithic representatives of Homo sapiens, have been recovered from Cova de les Malladetes and Cova del Parpalló.

DISSEMINATION SESSIONS DURING 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

Scientific dissemination is an essential task. During the 2021-2022 school year, DEATHREVOL has carried out different dissemination activities with the aim that general audience, including children and teenagers, can learn about part of our work.


TRAVELLING WITH DEATHREVOL

One of the objectives of DEATHREVOL is to trace the origin and evolution of funerary behavior in the European fossil record by focusing on the taphonomic analysis of Middle and Late Pleistocene hominins in Europe. To achieve this goal, DEATHREVOL team is traveling to different parts of the world in order to study this fossil record first-hand in the different institutions that contain them.

We will tell you more details about the trips in the next posts. Follow us!
