Rare Paleolithic Site Filled With Animal Bones Uncovered at Israeli Quarry

The large pit, settled 170,000 years ago, contains bones of rhinos and an extinct species of wild cattle.

Archaeologists have found a rare and large prehistoric site dating back around 170,000 years, a funnel-shaped pit, 30 meters deep and about 100 meters in diameter, containing an unusually large number of well-preserved animal bones, discovered accidentally in the course of quarrying in the center of the country.
