For XIV-1 The first European peopling: chronology, behaviour and environment Abstract submitted here. Full text currently in preparation.

The Cueva Cueva Negra del Estrecho del Río Quípar sediments, 5 m deep, have provided a Palaeolithic assemblage, including a bifacially-flaked limestone hand-axe, together with many small artifacts, some produced by repetitive knapping of small chert nodules, evidence of combustion in deep layers, and an archaic fauna, including 400 micromammalian teeth that testify to presence of several late Early Pleistocene Arvicoline rodent taxa throughout the sedimentary sequence which corresponds to the Matuyama chron and likely belongs to MIS-21.
