Gibraltar Caves

(Top) Gibraltar today with a series of caves at its base. Gorham’s is second from the left. (Bottom) A reconstruction of late Neanderthal times. The sea is down by 80-120m. Exposed is a marshland, plains environment, rich in food resources that the Neanderthals exploited. (© Gibraltar Museum)
