NEO: Linya, a 14,000 year old Homo sapiens

Researchers from the Centre for the Study of Archaeological Heritage (CEPARQ-UAB) recently made an exceptional discovery at the Cova Gran de Santa Linya: the remains of a female Homo sapiens dating back 14,000 years. They have called “Linya, the woman of Noguera”. Scientists are confident that this set of skeletal remains will shed a valuable light on the first groups of Homo sapiens living in the eastern pre-Pyrenees.
