Atapuerca Experimental Archaeology Centre

Ibeas de Juarros


This museum is devoted to the palaeontologist Emiliano Aguirre, who pioneered the scientific excavations at the Sierra de Atapuerca archaeological site, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. A multidisciplinary research team, made up of professionals in a variety of fields, including archaeologists, palaeontologists, biologists, geologists, etc., collaborated in these studies. The museum contains some of the items found in the village of Ibeas de Juarros: original pieces, replicas of tools and human fossils, models and information panels. Organised groups depart from this centre for visits to the archaeological sites.
