Cueva Antón is a Palaeolithic rockshelter, which since 2006, has been re-investigated by an international interdisciplinary team directed by João Zilhão, University of Barcelone. Several excavation campaigns have documented both layers with dispersed artefacts as well as clear occupation horizons with in-situ hearth features imbedded in mainly fluvial deposits. The CRC806 conducted a luminescence dating study on these deposits placing the main middle palaeolithic layers to marine isotope stage 5 and possibly 4.
