Abstract

We present the results of recent archaeological work at Avenc dels Dos Forats or Cova del Monedero (Carcaixent, Valencia, Spain). Previous information suggested the existence of human remains and elaborate grave goods associated with funerary or ritual activities, particularly from the Late Neolithic/Copper Age. New excavation indicates the complexity of prehistoric use of the cave and confirms its use as a burial site during the Late Neolithic/Copper Age and perhaps during the Bronze Age.
