GIBRALTAR has hosted a meeting of the international Ice Age Europe Project for the first time.

Now consisting of 18 partners in seven European countries, the project – of which Gibraltar Museum is a founding member – is a network of heritage sites across Europe.

Established in 2013 under the banner Ice Age Europe, representatives met at the Wessex Lounge at the Gibraltar International airport last week.

Members from as far afield as Croatia, Germany and Belgium hope to expand our knowledge of Europe during the Ice Age, to enhance our common cultural heritage.

One of the main ongoing projects involves more than 70 researchers, looking at the movement of man from Africa into Europe.
