Traces of flowers placed on a Palaeolithic tomb

8 mayo 2015

The burial of the so-called Red Lady, dating back to the Upper Palaeolithic, was discovered in El Mirón cave (Cantabria) in 2010. Unlike most Palaeolithic tombs this one is intact and has not been contaminated. Researchers have now anayzed the remains of fossilized pollen dating back more than 16,000 years ago and which appeared on the tomb.
