The Times of Altamira

Before Altamira

During the Pleistocene epoch, the planet was inhabited by other species of humans who lived before us and developed different cultures.

After one million years of evolution, the human species gave rise to Homo sapiens, our own species, responsible for the culture of the times of Altamira (the Upper Palaeolithic age).

The inhabitants of Altamira manufactured tools from stone and bone, representing a full, diversified and specialised tool box that constituted a genuine technological revolution.
