The archaeological site of Atapuerca (Spain), declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, has the greatest concentration of human fossils in the world, and 80% of the known human fossil record of over 300,000 years. The Sierra de Atapuerca has hosted human populations without interruption from between 1.8 and 1.3 million years ago until the present day.
The mission of the Atapuerca Foundation, a private non-profit entity, is to support the scientific team of the Atapuerca Project, coordinating the excavation of the sites, promoting pre- and post-doctoral studies on the results of the excavations, and disseminating this research and scientific knowledge about the history of humanity and its evolution.
