The Neanderthal camps at Cova de les Teixoneres maintained their basic structure for more than 20,000 years.
This is confirmed in a study that is now published in the journal Scientific Reports.
It has been known by analyzing the spatial distribution of more than 40,000 objects dated between 60,000 and 40,000 years old found in this place.
They were installed exclusively at the entrance to the cavity and fire was never lacking as a central element and catalyst for domestic activities.
The conclusion is the result of an investigation in which researchers and institutions from Spain, France, Germany, Australia, Argentina and the United States have participated.
