Nahal Me’arot Nature Reserve

Nahal Me’arot Nature Reserve is known for the caves in which remnants of prehistoric humans, dating from 500,000 years ago to 12,000 years ago, were found.
The caves are located on the southern side of the Mearot Stream on the Carmel mountain range. 

The findings in the caves revealed aspects of prehistoric humans’ way of life from different periods: Homo Erectus and Neanderthals inhabited these caves between approximately 150,000 years ago until 50,000 years ago, as did the more modern Homo sapiens, up until about 12,000 years ago.
