A map with area names can be found here.

   January & February

   At the start of January over 56 sites were updated with amendments, photos and videos supplied by Phil Parker, some dating back to 2009. The numbers aren't itemised in this narrative but can be found in the list at the base of this January / February section.
   Peter Smith provided a new survey for Cueva Asiul, one of the palaeoclimate study caves and Diane Arthurs & Simon Cornhill completed the drawn up survey for the recent extensions in Cueva del Bosque.
   The entrance to the magnificent Cueva de Suviejo (site 122) has been gated by the authorities, presumable to protect the archaeological items.

  The list below shows links to those 58 sites which were extended or newly discovered over January & February 2018, or which have had surveys, references or descriptions updated, photos or movie clips added, or entrances repositioned with a GPS.
