Ice Age Europe Magazine 2018 published
Welcome to the second edition of the Ice Age Europe magazine! After the successful launch last year we are happy to present the new issue, which is again brimming with exciting contributions. The magazine showcases the many activities taking place in research and conservation, exhibition, education and communication at each of the Ice Age Europe member sites.
In addition, we are pleased to present two special guest contributions: The first by Paul Pettitt, University of Durham, gives a brief overview of a groundbreaking discovery, which proved in February 2018 that the Neanderthals were the first cave artists before modern humans. The second by Nuria Sanz, director of UNESCO in Mexico and general coordinator of the HEADS programme, reports on the new initiative for a serial transnational nomination of Neanderthal sites as World Heritage, for which this network laid the foundation.
The magazine is available online to view on ISSUU or to download >> here.
We hope you enjoy reading!
