The Catalogue of Italian Fossil Human Remains from Palaeolithic to the Mesolithic was developed within the framework of Targeted Project - Cultural Heritage of the Italian National Research Council. Information of the most diverse nature (anthropological, geo-chronological, paleo-environmental) about sites and human remains, is gathered together, creating a source of knowledge that becomes essential for the valorisation and conservation of such "Cultural Assets".


Seventy-eight different sites are catalogued, deriving from studies and finds that, from 1860 to the present day, include human remains belonging to a time period of more than 800.000 years. About 258 human remains are described and include both whole burials and single skeletal remains.


"Le collezioni primatologiche italiane" si pone non solo come documento sullo status del patrimonio primatologico italiano, ma anche come strumento per utilizzare al meglio questo patrimonio nel campo della cultura scientifica e dell' educazione alla conservazione della biodiversita'.
