Back to Shanidar

Shanidar 2018
For a number of years some staff members have been involved with the excavations at Shanidar Caves in Northern Kurdistan with Professor Graeme Barker from Cambridge University. The site is famous for the discovery of the remains of 10 Neanderthal individuals, thought to be up to 65,000 years old.

This season saw the discovery of more Neanderthal remains, including a skull! For more photographs and a full report follow theĀ link.
