2015 FIELD WORK SEASON

The twenty-fifth field-work season was conducted between September 7th and October 4th. The tasks were focused on the excavation of the level XIII (MIS 7, ca 200,000 years) in the Northern Sector of the site, in the same area as the previous field-work season. The work involved the squares A10-N12 with an area of 42 m2, and 20 cm thickness. In the Western Sector, we removed the spoil sediments. In total, 3,756 archaeological items (bones/teeth and lithics) were recovered. The excavation team involved 22 people, including students, doctors and technicians.
