Revadim Quarry

The Lower Paleolithic site of Revadim is located on the Southern Coastal plain of Israel. The excavations during this season revealed two distinct archaeological horizons with extremely high density of artifacts (such as handaxes, scrapers and chopping tools), which can be ascribed to the Late Acheulian. The faunal assemblage uncovered at the site comprises of horses, wild boars, deer, antelopes, wild cats and rodents.
