Caption: Fossilised pelvis, Sima de los Huesos. Comparison of a male Homo sapien pelvis (left) and a male Homo heidelbergensis pelvis (right). The fossilised pelvis, nicknamed Elvis, is the only known intact pelvis dating back 400,000 years. It was found at Sima de los Huesos (Pit of Bones) in 1994 by the team working with Professor Juan Luis Arsuaga. Sima de los Huesos is one of several sites in Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain, that have been studied on and off over the past century, leading to a massive advancement in the understanding of human evolution. In 2000, Sierra de Atapuerca was made a world heritage site by UNESCO.
