Abstract

In this paper we present the preparation of some fossils from the Pleistocene levels of the cave site of Tossal de la Font. The presence of carbonated concretions, which is the main feature of these specimens, is a problem common to many remains from some calcareous caves. Treatments are based on mechanical cleaning, and intervention criteria are directed at recovering the palaeontological and archaeological information
