The central Meseta is a high plateau located in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula. Abundant evidence of Lower and Middle Palaeolithic occupations of the region contrasts with scarce evidence of a human presence during the early Upper Palaeolithic. On this basis, it has been suggested that climatic downturns triggered the temporary abandonment, or...

Hominid–carnivore interaction is a constant feature along the Pleistocene: both species shared time and space, and contributed to the formation of bone assemblages. Thus, the identification of the agent responsible for the accumulations found in any site demands a series of analyses. Taking into account that wolves were frequent carnivores in the E...

... Finally, the rich Iberian Paleolithic record has generated interest (comparable to that in the Balkans) in environmentally targeted surveys, which have revealed new evidence for the extent and type of Paleolithic occupation. Work on modern human settlement before and during the Last Glacial Maximum has been particularly successful in illustrating the long-term dynamism of human activity in the Pleistocene (Burke et al. 2021). ...
... Carnivore traces were identified as deep punctures in the cortical bone surface, concentrated on the articular ends of the bones, as well as pits and scores with U-shaped striations on bone surfaces (Binford 1981). The results were compared with those from other well-known cave hyena sites and to studies of bone assemblages produced by large carnivores (e.g., Arriaza et al., 2016;Diedrich, 2012bDiedrich, , 2012cGatta et al., 2019;Stiner, 1991;Yravedra et al. 2011Yravedra et al. , 2012. In addition, digestion traces, gnawing of rodents and ichnotraces were also examined (Bocheński et al., 1998;Fernandez-Jalvo and Andrews, 2016;Fernandez-Jalvo et al., 1998;Lloveras et al., 2009;Pirrone et al., 2014;Thompson et al., 2018;Gatta et al., 2021). ...
