Excavations at the adjacent sites of Gorham's Cave and Vanguard
Cave have yielded a rich combination of archaeological and
palaeoenvironmental finds covering a timespan of over 100,000
years. This volume deals with the primary results of the 1995-1998
excavations at both caves. The 24 chapters by leading specialists
cover a range of topics from information concerning the nature and
sequence of Middle Palaeolithic Neanderthal occupations to the
reconstruction of the environmental context of these activities,
based on proxy indicators such as sediments, charcoal, amphibians,
reptiles, avifaunal remains, and small and large mammals. The
Gibraltar evidence provides a rare insight into the lives of
Neanderthals in a western Mediterranean coastal setting. It also
presents site information on some of the last Neanderthal
populations and the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition.
