Large and heavy Chopper from the first settlers of the European continent, probably made by an individual of the Homo Antecessor species that migrated from Africa to Western Europe, unlike Homo Erectus whose presence is basically established in East Asia, Java, China...
The deposits studied in the 21st century in the Iberian Peninsula have provided invaluable information, confirming an occupation long before the previously accepted chronology and in addition to studies of stratigraphic levels, an immense amount of tools have been found in a technical mode 1 and a technical mode 2.
Thanks to recent publications I can offer extraordinary material with proven information.
In As Neves, Pontevedra province and in other locations very close to each other, materials of such interest have been found that place these deposits among the most important on the continent, along with Atapuerca and Dmanisi in Georgia.
Thanks to the excavations of recent years, the presence of at least three species along the Miño River has been confirmed: Homo Antecessor, Homo Habilis and Homo Ergaster from Africa creating new routes.
