Atapuerca (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 Homoheidelbergensisfossils ever excavated. And soon: an exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in New York. I know my plans for January 11th.
