Tinshemet  Cave

About The Project

Tinshemet Cave is a newly excavated Middle Paleolithic site in Israel. Recent excavations have revealed a unique combination of finds including articulated human remains, flint tools, evidence for the use of fire, and other finds.

Our excavation project is focused on determining what Homo species inhabited Tinshemet Cave and on studying the cultural markers of these cave dwellers.
