All the fossil remains found in the Guattari Cave are thought to be of adults.

The fossil remains of nine Neanderthal men have been found in a cave in Italy, the culture ministry announced Saturday, a major discovery in the study of our ancient cousins.

Culture Minister Dario Franceschini hailed the find as "an extraordinary discovery which the whole world will be talking about".

The findings follow new research begun in October 2019 into the Guattari Cave, which was found by accident by a group of workers in February 1939.

On visiting the site shortly afterwards, paleontologist Albert Carlo Blanc made a stunning find -- a well-preserved skull of a Neanderthal man.

The cave had been closed off by an ancient landslide, preserving everything inside as a snapshot in time that is slowly offering up its secrets.

There are remains of large mammals including elephant, rhinoceros, giant deer, cave bear, wild horses and aurochs -- extinct bovines. »
