2000 FIELD WORK SEASON

The tenth excavation season took place between the 18th of September and the 16th of October. We focused on the excavation of strata XI, XII, XIII, XIV and XV. These, with a width of 420 cm were excavated on squares A2, B2, B3, D2, D3, F2, F3, N4, N5, O4, Q3, Q4 and Q5 (12 m2) by the lifting of superficial layers with an average density of 10 cm. On the western sector we excavated stratum XI with five layers and scarce bone remains. Level XII was excavated also in five layers in squares B2, B3, D2, D3, F2 and F3 (6 m2).  On the eastern sector and next to the cave’s wall we excavated 19 layers (Z= 630-775) affecting squares N4, N5, O4, O5, Q3, Q4 y Q5 (5 m2) and with a reduction of the surface’s deepness when we found the stalagmite layer.
