The Catalogue of Italian Fossil Human Remains from Palaeolithic to the Mesolithic was developed within the framework of Targeted Project - Cultural Heritage of the Italian National Research Council. Information of the most diverse nature (anthropological, geo-chronological, paleo-environmental) about sites and human remains is gathered together, creating a source of knowledge that becomes essential for the valorisation and conservation of such “Cultural Assets”. Seventy-eight sites studied from 1860 to the present day are considered (see map on the right), including 258 human remains covering a period of more than 800.000 years. This considerable information should make the Catalogue a useful tool to help understand how ancient human beings distributed in the territory and geo-climatic changes influenced peopling processes.

Abstract

The Catalogue of Italian Fossil Human Remains from Palaeolithic to the Mesolithic was developed within the framework of Targeted Project - Cultural Heritage of the Italian National Research Council. Information of the most diverse nature (anthropological, geo-chronological, paleo-environmental) about sites and human remains is gathered together, creating a source of knowledge that becomes essential for the valorisation and conservation of such “Cultural Assets”. Seventy-eight sites studied from 1860 to the present day are considered (see map on the right), including 258 human remains covering a period of more than 800.000 years. This considerable information should make the Catalogue a useful tool to help understand how ancient human beings distributed in the territory and geo-climatic changes influenced peopling processes.
