Grimaldi

 

a cluster of caves near the Italian city of Ven-timiglia on the Mediterranean coast near the border between France and Italy.

In 1901 an Upper Paleolithic double burial site of an elderly woman and a youth was discovered at a depth of 8.7 m in one of the caves (the Grotto of Children). Several characteristics of the skull and skeletal structure gave the first investigators grounds for erroneously classifying the remains as belonging to a special protonegroid “Grimaldian race.” Later investigation (1962) showed that they belonged to the Cro-Magnon race.
