Yacimientos de la Sierra de Atapuerca offers a glimpse at millenia of human history: from early humans through the Bronze Age, and on up to modern man. Its excavation took some 12 years, from 1978 to 1990, and 10 years later UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. Studies of human evolution now obligatorily refer to this dig. An impressive site known as the Bone Pit contains more than 5,500 human bones. Consider visiting the museum in the city proper and buying a joint ticket, which includes the bus to this location.
