The Bolomor Cave It is a heritage and cultural jewel of the Valencian municipality of Tavernes de la Valldigna which is now promoted as a tourist attraction due to the global impact of the research carried out there in how neanderthals tamed fire.

In it, the remains associated with the oldest human settlement of the Valencian Community have been found, which were dated between 350,000 and 90000 BC, corresponding to the Lower Paleolithic, as well as the first evidence of controlled fire in the Peninsula around 150,000 BC.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
