The interdisciplinary work did by specialists from the Universities of Seville, Cordoba, Huelva, and Murcia on the Las Ventanas surrender (Granada) have made it conceivable to recognize another site with giving in craftsmanship in Andalusia.

The south of the Iberian landmass is home to one of the greatest and critical arrangements of surrender workmanship destinations in Western Europe. Be that as it may, most of the give in craftsmanship has been credited to generally ongoing periods, for example, the Upper Paleolithic (under 22,000 years back and hence concurring with the advancement of the Solutrean and Magdalenian societies), while the likelihood of the presence of hints of more established societies has been the reason for much discourse. This viewpoint has been connected both to the late sequences ascribed, up to this point, to the Middle-Upper Paleolithic progress in the extraordinary South-West of Europe just as the non-presence of a portion of the antiquated periods of Paleolithic craftsmanship reported in the north of Iberia.

The exploration completed features the cozy connection between the buckle craftsmanship in the south of Iberia amid different stages with that found in locales in the north of Iberia. In this sense, the specialized, expressive and sequential qualities reported in the Las Ventanas give in (Píñar, Granada) point to the presence of specific similitudes with the presence of profound outside etchings of Cantabrian Paleolithic workmanship. The information appears to concur with the age credited to this kind of realistic portrayal and shows the unexpected arrival of the Upper Paleolithic toward the south of Iberia.

“As indicated by our investigations, we would need to play down the alleged Neanderthal survival at the la Carigüela site in Granada (one of the fundamental late locales of the Southern Iberian Middle Paleolithic) and furthermore the conceivable communication between current people and Neanderthals in the extraordinary South-West of Europe, which, as of not long ago, depended on the closeness with an etching credited to this period in Gibraltar”, clarifies the University of Seville and leader of the exploration venture, Miguel Cortés Sánchez.

In this manner, the specialists demonstrate, the subsequent stage in the examination will be to look all the more profoundly into the annihilation of the Neanderthals and the landing of the main present-day people toward the south of the Iberian landmass.
