Early Man in Spain
In southern Spain, paleontologists have found human-made tools that are up to 1.7 million years old. When, exactly, did humans first arrive in Europe, and how did they get here? How did they live? Helping a father and son team-Dr. Josep Gibert Clols and Luis Gibert-find the answers in the sediments of the Guadix-Baza basin are Jair Furnas (Ferndale, Washington, USA), Luiz Augusto Simao (Poços de Caldas, Brazil), and Terrence Trasatti (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA).
