García Vadillo, Francisco Javier

PhD Student


Sponsor: Fundación Atapuerca Grant


I am an archaeologist who obtained my Bachelor's degree in History in the Universidad de Extremadura. I took up the Master’s degree in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili.

My main research interest is the Acheulean lithic industry of Early and Middle Pleistocene. I collaborate with several research projects and archaeological fieldworks such as Santa Ana cave, Maltravieso cave, El Conejar cave and Sierra de Atapuerca.

Now I am the beneficiary of a Predoctoral Fellowship with the financial sponsorship of the Fundación Atapuerca.

My PhD. is focused on the study of the Acheulean lithic assemblage of Santa Ana cave and cultural phenomena that explain the singularity of this lithic industry in the context of the Iberian Peninsula.
