Inside the museum
The museum spreads over four floors. It is partly a showcase for the research work at Atapuerca which is a World Heritage Site. Atapuerca1 is a site about 15 kms north east of Burgos where human and animal remains have been found since 1976, dating back c.800,000 years. A railway line was cut through the hills and this uncovered items of interest and caves.
