The Prado Vargas cave has been systematically excavated since 2016. A large amount of Mousterian material has been recovered in an excellent state of preservation. The most important finding has been a Neanderthal milk tooth. This discovery confirms the great potential of this site to study the last and penultimate groups of Neanderthals.
