Cova del Parpalló Fauna (Upper Paleolithic, 20000-11000 BP)

Vitrina 16.1
The arrival of anatomically modern humans coincides with a lower mobility of human groups, which results in the specialization of hunting of gregarious species with limited movement. In Upper Paleolithic sites, such as Cova del Parpalló (Gandia, Valencia), deer and goat range among the most hunted animals, depending on the location of human habitats. Rabbit is intensively incorporated into the human diet, acting as a complementary resource to medium-sized ungulates.
