During the 1930's, Neanderthal and early modern human remains were excavated from caves in Mt. Carmel, producing the longest stratigraphic record of human activity in the region spanning 150,000 years and providing important insights into human evolutionary history.

There are several caves making up the complex, each housing remains from a different period.
