An iconic new development in Gibraltar providing residential property for sale, Forbes 1848 takes its name from the nearby Forbes Quarry and 18 th century military installation known as Forbes Battery. Forbes Quarry was an area in Gibraltar’s Upper Rock Nature Reserve that during the nineteenth century was quarried to supply stone for reinforcing military
During the quarrying, a cave was discovered, Forbes Cave, and on exploration of this in 1848, the skull of an adult Neanderthal female was found by Captain Edmund Flint. This was the only the second Neanderthal skull ever found, and its discovery has led to Gibraltar being a central part of research into the Neanderthals. The design of the Forbes 1848 development pays homage to this historic link, and its ground level café will be themed and include a permanent exhibit with info-graphics of the Quarry and the discovery of the Gibraltar Skull.
