I Volunteered for This?!
Reopen The Caves Of Early Humans
Manot Cave is a unique site, combining an active stalactite cave with depositions of human occupation. Most of the finds date to the period in which modern humans and Neanderthals lived in the Levant, and the identity of the humans who lived in the cave is still to be determined. The cave, which was sealed from the world for at least 15,000 years, may hold answers to many questions regarding the spread of modern humans from Africa to Europe through the Levant.
