The Gorham's Cave Complex is one of the world's most important sites for understanding the "global story" of human evolution and adaptation and offers some of the most comprehensive evidence of the life (and death) of the Neanderthals. This is the primary reason for the recent (2016) inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Join Doctors Geraldine and Clive Finlayson, the scientists involved in 'unearthing' these rich discoveries, as they take you deep in to the heart of Gorham's Cave and share stories of evolution, excavation and hominoid history. While portions of the cave are sometimes available to the public, fewer than 120 people are allowed access to this area of cave each year. In this truly limited experience you will have the chance to see something few people have or ever will lay eyes on, all with the world's foremost experts on this subject and the site itself.

Next, you will visit the Gibraltar Museum and have access to archeological finds not available to the general public.

Please note: This excursion involves walking on steep cliffs and operates weather dependent. Wear sturdy walking shoes.
