In view of the high complexity of the formation processes of the open air archeological deposits of Middle Pleistocene it becomes necessary to study specific sedimentary fenomena related to single sites and their correlation with the regional environment. In order to understand how adaptation of human groups in the European continent occurs, it would be of great importance to have a more precise chronological framework for this period, based either in numerical dating or in geographical contextualization. A better knowledge about the environmental conditions in which these human occupation took a place, would allow us to propose more feasible interpretations about tne taphonomic processes and the human behaviour generated at these cities. The archeological record of Middle Pleistocene at open air sedimentary contexts makes possible to evaluate the degree of human presence in the Iberian Peninsula, as much as to characterize the management of natural resources and the subsistence strategies developed by these groups.
