This represents some events taking place in the last 65 million years, from the extinction of a large part of the dinosaurs to our days.
During the Tertiary, the predominance of reptiles made way to that of mammals that would constitute the ancestors of modern faunas. The deposit of Llamaquique, in Oviedo, belongs to this period, with the Cantabrotherium truyolsi as its main representative. A touch-screen allows the visitor to recreate the landscape and the ecosystems throughout different stages of the past 65 million years.
Another of the spaces of the hall dedicated to the Quaternary exhibits a drawing with the reconstruction of a man from Atapuerca (Burgos), accompanied by the replica of skull no. 5 from this deposit, which is around 300,000 years old. Also, it includes a panel representing the progressive reduction of the habitat for the brown bear in the north of the Iberian Peninsula over the past 500 years. Likewise, there is an example of the skull of a cave bear.
