(in Spanish, with incomplete English translation) is the site of the earliest European hominid ancestors yet found in Europe. Two of the most stunning finds are Gran Dolina
, where the first Homo antecessor
fossils were found, and Sima de los Huesos, site of the most complete Homo heidelbergensis fossils
ever excavated. And soon: an exhibit
at the Museum of Natural History in New York. I know my plans for January 11th.

Previously discussed here
, the Body World exhibition
in, London, Brick Lane is hosting what is to be the last publicly performed autopsy
before they are banned. I've seen the exhibition and felt that it was done very well, but I'm not sure ill be attending the autopsy with as much haste. Macabre voyeurism or lay man intrigue? Its being rumored that is may also be televised on channel 4

corpse exhibit, Körperwelten
(Body Worlds), is set to display human corpses in London, UK in two days. UK health department concluded that the exhibit did not breach the 1984 Anatomy Act as the law did not cover the preservation of corpses by means of plastination, a technique invented by Professor Gunther von Hagens
, the creator of the exhibit.
