Map of the Atapuerca fossil site. The Atapuerca mountain range in the province of Burgos, Spain, contains hominid fossils providing evidence for the presence and way of life of humanity over a period of nearly one million years. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. The geology consists of karst, including small dolinas (subterranean chambers which open to the outside) and subterranean chambers and tunnels formed by water action. The sites marked here, in the La Trinchera region, are: Gran Dolina (yellow, upper left), Galeria (blue, upper left), Sima del Elefante (purple, centre left), Cueva del Silo (yellow, lower left), Sala de los Ciclopes (blue, lower centre), Sima de los Huesos (orange, lower centre), and Cueva Mayor (Portalon, green, lower right). A scale is given in metres.
