The History of Gibraltar

The Rock of Gibraltar is a Jurassic limestone promontory, formed from the shells of tiny sea creatures which compacted layer upon layer on the seabed some 200 million years ago. Between 60 and 20 million years ago movement of the Earth’s tectonic plates uplifted these layers of rock to their present position, where they have been shaped by the sea and weather to give the Rock of Gibraltar the iconic form we all recognise today.

The Gibraltar Caves Project was born in 1989 out of a contact between the present Curator and a team from the British Museum and the Natural History Museum in London. It all started with the revisiting of the magnificent Gorham’s Cave site which had been partially excavated in the 1950s. The project continues to the present day, with annual excavations by an international, multidisciplinary team. One result of this work has been the inscription of the Gorham's Cave Complex as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
