Abstract: The geomorphological, geochronological and archaeological investigations developed over the recent years in the lower Miño basin have led to the identification of 9 levels of fluvial terrace and other sedimentary deposits. The sedimentary features indicate stable river patterns over time, which are dominated by a braided gravel model. The earliest human presence in the area has been documented in the intermediate terrace deposits (elevations + 30-39 m and + 21-29 m). They include several archaeological sites characterized by large flake Acheulian lithic assemblages, whose age range between MIS 9 and 6. Finally, additional Middle Palaeolithic sites have also been identified within the terrace deposits +13-17 m, whose inferred age would most likely be between MIS 5 and 4.
