If you follow us, you know that in Urdazubi-Urdax there was a conflict between the prehistoric remains found in our caves and the exploitation of a quarry.
Thanks to the struggle of Sos Alekerdi got the Government of Navarre to commission an investigation into the Aranzadi Society to determine if there was an unknown archaeological heritage and, if so, how the existence of that quarry affected it.
We believe, but this is only one our supposition, that neither wanted nor thought to find anything relevant because they hardly gave them time to carry out their study. But the result was surprising even to us because there were very important findings.
The logical thing in these cases is that these discoveries are cause for joy and publicity. In the case of Urdazubi-Urdax, although they have not been hidden, hardly has spoken of the subject. We do not know what is meant by this silence, but we can see that very few people in Navarre (let alone outside) have heard of the findings made in our caves.
As this blog, among other things, is to publicize those "secretillos" that seems to have the Government of Navarre and that we are so harmed, we want to make public and notorious the treasures that enclose our caves . To make it unthinkable, or even to propose any activity that would put you in danger.
I am getting too long so I make a short list of new discoveries with the intention of talking about each one more in detail. The information from the page of Aranzadi Zientzia Elkartea:
- Three kilometers of new galleries and 53 new accesses to cavities.An intact room with paleological remains on the surface called the Gallery of the Silex.
- Two figures of animals recorded.
- Four paintings that appear to be the back of two animals.
- Archeological material found in its original position
