The Pleistocene in Eritrea, animals, plants and tools of a million years

Bienvenido Martínez i Antoni Canals al podcast "Desenterrando el Pasado" de National Geographic i la Fundació Palarq

Eritrea is located on the northeast coast of Africa, just at the northern end of the Great Rift Valley. The gruesome political context and the extreme climatic conditions of the country make archaeological excavations a challenge for these two Spanish researchers who work there under harsh conditions. Even so, they have brought to light remains from more than a million years ago.

Bienvenido Martínez, ICREA researcher at IPHES-CERCA and Antoni Canals, professor at the URV and researcher at IPHES-CERCA explain the project on the podcast 'Unearthing the Past' from National Geographic and Fundació Palarq
