At first, a numerical code was adopted to name the stratigraphic units, but this system was abandoned in 1990. Since then we have used an alphabetical system for the archeological levels. 1. Apart from the excavation of the small remains of the uppermost levels (A–D) mainly preserved all along the shelter wall, our work has mostly been devoted to extensively excavating the Middle Paleolithic layers over large surfaces. Levels E to J were still significantly altered by the old pits and trenches, but from level K downwards the archeological units were virtually intact.

2005), as well as interdisciplinary studies of specific archeological levels (Carbonell 1992, 2002; Vallverdú et al. 2005a). Level J was primarily excavated between 1993 and 1996, except for at the westernmost part of the site (columns 40–42), which was excavated between 1998 and 1999 (Figs. 15). The excavated area was comprised of the space between columns 40–65 and rows G–V, which represents a total surface area of 250 m2. As we have seen, level J was the last archeological unit significantly affected by the previous excavations, although less so than the overlying levels.
