Eudald Carbonell i Roura (born 17 February 1953, Ribes de Freser, Girona) is a Spanish archaeologist, anthropologist and paleontologist.

Educated in Girona, Barcelona and Paris, he holds a PhD in Geology of the Quaternary from Pierre and Marie Curie University (1986), and one in History from the University of Barcelona (1988).

In June 2015 he left the direction of the Institut Català de Paleoecologia Humana i Evolució Social[1] to be professor at the University of Rovira and Virgili in Tarragona.[2] He also serves as co-director of the excavations at the Archaeological Site of Atapuerca, together with José María Bermúdez de Castro and Juan Luis Arsuaga.[3]

His findings include the discovery of Homo antecessor,[4][5] and well-preserved remains of Homo heidelbergensis.[6]
