Abstract

La Sima of Constantina, located at the northermost part of Seville province, is a karstic cave with a thick terrigenous and chemical (flowstone) record. These sedimentary formations are representative of the Late Quaternary palaeoenvironmental history about these mountains (Sierra Morena) of the Southwestern Iberian Peninsula. There are many evidences of vertebrate bone remains of alleged prays, coprolites and bones of spotted hyaena (Crocuta cf. crocuta), mainly at the lower sedimentary layers, dated c.a. 72.5 ky BP. Upper detritic sediments show Calcolithic remains, with human bones, pottery and charcoallayers aged 4 600 ± 200 cal yr AMS.
