Caption: Atapuerca fossil excavation. Researchers excavating human and animal fossils from a level in the Gran Dolina site in the Sierra de Atapuerca foothills near Burgos, Spain. The Atapuerca fossil sites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, containing the earliest human remains found in Europe. The Gran Dolina site contains several levels, with most of the hominid fossils found in the TD-10 level (Homo heidelbergensis, 450,000 years old) and the TD-6 level (Homo antecessor, 780,000 years old). At Gran Dolina, there are eleven sedimentary strata in total, of which seven are of archaeological and palaeoanthropological interest.
