Police in Cadiz have recovered a collection of prehistoric tools of extraordinary archaeological value.
Operation “Arrow” led detectives to a haul of archaeological treasures from all over the world.
Two searches in La Linea de la Concepcion, Cadiz, found almost 500 pieces from Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas as well as pieces of value from the Campo de Gibraltar region and other towns in Spain.
Some artefacts are up to 25,000 years old and include finds from Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Neanderthal eras.
“It is a spectacular collection of great heritage and historical value,” said Jose Ramos Munoz, a Professor of Prehistory at the University of Cadiz, adding that the police recovered “high quality material that should be deposited and guarded in an Archaeological Museum for the enjoyment of society.”
The prehistoric artefacts will be transferred to the Municipal Museum of Algeciras where they will be subjected to more precise and detailed studies by experts from the University Cadiz and the Provincial Delegation of Culture.
