GIBRALTAR: Gorham’s Cave

MAN has been polluting the earth for over 40,000 years, according to new archaeological evidence unearthed on the Rock.

A study of a neanderthal’s cave in Gibraltar found that man has been burning heavy metal since Palaeolithic times.

High levels of copper, lead, nickel and zinc were found at Gorham’s Cave by a team of scientists lead by director of the Gibraltar museum Clive Finlayson.
