Carolina Moreno, Professor of Journalism at the University of Valencia, and researcher Empar Vengut, manager of the No Rumour Health project, have started working on the project with a consortium of three European countries (Spain, Greece and Poland).

A research team from the University of Valencia and the CSIC has published a study that demonstrates the use of plant fibres during the Final Palaeolithic era in the Santa Maira caves (Castell de Castells, Alicante). These are fragments of braided rope and basketwork imprints on clay. The rope has provided the oldest direct dating in Europe for an object made of braided fibres: 12,700 years ago. In the same work, the first evidence on the use of containers made from clay-coated baskets has also been revealed.
The game has been published by Castelló Town Council and created by UJI lecturer Enric Ramiro, and aims to make the work of these women visible. Read More
