A new look at the first modern humans in the Iberian Peninsula
Was human settlement of interior Iberia during the last glaciation period (110 000 to 11 700 years ago) more stable than previously thought? For problems such as the replacement of Neanderthals by modern humans, the first modern human peopling of Europe, and the land use and mobility patterns during the coldest stages of the last glacial, what were the implications at the European scale? To answer such questions, the EU-funded MULTIPALEOIBERIA project will investigate population dynamics and human-environment interactions of the last Neanderthals and first modern humans in interior Iberia. Due to a historical bias, these regions have remained relatively under-investigated. The project aims to gather unprecedented field evidence by means of a macro-regional fieldwork programme.
