Ornaments from Cova del Parpalló (Gandia, Valencia)

Vitrina 17
With the emergence of modern humans the first objects used as ornaments appeared. Burials and samples recovered from their habitats attest that, from the Aurignacian, the European Upper Paleolithic hunters sew onto their clothes a variety of beads, shells, drilled teeth and small sculptures. All of this, together with the use of collars and other types of pendants, contributed to their personal ornamentation.
