Caption: Cueva Mayor cave exploration. Cavers exploring the Galeria de las Estatuas section of the Cueva Mayor cave system in the Sierra de Atapuerca foothills in northern Spain. The Cueva Mayor site was first discovered in 1910 and is believed to contain evidence of the final phase of human evolution, between 127,000 and 11,000 years ago. More recent human occupation, dating back 3,800 years means that it will take time to excavate through the Early Bronze Age levels to the Upper Pleistocene levels. In 2000, Sierra de Atapuerca was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
