In 1969, Joaquin Gonzalez Echegaray, of the Museo de Prehistoria of Santander, and Leslie G. Freeman, of the University of Chicago, carried on excavations at a cave in Cueva. There was found a burial of around 30,000 B.C. which included a clay mold formed by the skeleton and outer part of the person's body together with funerary offerings. Sol Tax, of the University of Chicago and the Smithsonian and the father-in-law of Freeman, offered the cooperation of the Smithsonian in preserving the interment for exhibition. Steps were taken to stabilize it and to allow its shipment to Washington by the United States Air Force. The remain stayed in Washington, part of the time on exhibit, until 1972 when they were returned to Spain.
