The caves of Roccia San Sebastiano, which overlook the
Tyrrhenian Sea north of Naples, are being combed for traces of
those who once lived there.
On the slopes of the medieval fortress of Montis Dragonis,
near Mondragone in Caserta province, researchers say they've
uncovered layers of history, rich in early historical finds.
The discovery is telling them "a story of the evolution
that goes from 40,000 to 20,000 years ago, when the cave was
used for uninterrupted time by Neanderthals and Sapiens," says
prehistoric archaeologist Carmine Collina.
