Marco Peresani was awarded a Leakey Foundation Research Grant in the spring of 2015 for his project entitled “Rediscovering the Uluzzian in Italy,” which focuses on the presence of the first Anatomically Modern Humans in Western Eurasia and their interaction with the local population of Neanderthals. The specific aims of this project are to reconstruct the behavioral dynamics across the Uluzzian by continuing excavation and concluding zooarchaeological and lithic tool studies of a group of sites across Italy, including Fumane Cave, Broion Rockshelter, Castelcivita Cave, La Cala Cave and Uluzzo C Cave.
Recently, Dr. Peresani sent us this message with the following image, and we thought we would share it with you!
I’m delighted to present the new banner of Fumane Cave which will be displayed outside the cave.
Again, thank you for supporting archaeological research and outreach at Fumane.
