Abstract

Elba, the woman that comes from the mountains is the english translation of the Celtic name that has been chosen for the remains found on an old path that goes from Courel to Ancares (Galice, Spain) and that correspond to a young woman who surprised the death traveling with 3 uros 9300 years ago. It presents the description of the cave where the remains were found, its genetic and isotopic study, a forensic study of its remains as well as a reproduction of its face obtained by the usual restoration techniques.
