Abstract

We have analyzed the mitochondrial DNA variability of human remains recovered from the cave of El Mirón (Ramales de la Victoria, Cantabria). Although this is a small sample, is important to helping to increase our knowledge about hunter-gatherer groups from the Cantabrian region. The mitochondrial lineage of El Mirón, corresponds to rCRS belonging to haplogroup H. So far, only this mitochondrial lineage has been detected in other hunter-gatherer from cave of La Pasiega, also in Cantabria; however, this lineage has been found in the agro-pastoralist groups from Cantabrian Fringe and other regions of Europe, suggesting an increase in haplogroup H diversity beginning in Neolithic times.
