Orce Ravine

An archaeological locale found c. 1982 in the Guadix-Baza Basin near Orce, Granada, south central Spain, dating to 1.07-0.78mya (Baza Formation, paleomagnetism; probably older than 1.07mya) that contains artifacts (cores and flake debris) mixed with mammoth and other mammal bones at two sites (Barranco León and Fuente Nueva 3). A third site, Venta Micena, produced contentious hominid remains including a child’s cranial fragment (VM-0, Orce Man) assigned to sp. indet.
