A cave of astonishing wonders

It draws tourists with its captivating beauty, where stalactites hang from the ceiling and stalagmites rise from the ground. The exploration of this cave caused a stir in the paleontology world. In 1960, the discovery of a 700,000-year-old skull revealed a treasure of artifacts that were previously only seen in books.

Archanthropus: not primitive species
