Torralba

Archaeological site found in 1960 near Torralba in Spain, dated to 400-200 kya, and that contains Acheulean artifacts and disarticulated bones from the left side of an elephant, but no hominid remains. It was a butchering site and it has been suggested by F. Clark Howell that there is evidence of the controlled use of fire by hominids.
