Ancient humans hid in Saudi Arabian lava tube for over 7,000 year

According to a recent research by archaeologists, prehistoric humans lived for nearly 7,000 years within a lava tube in Saudi Arabia.  

The timing of ancient humans' occupation and their connection to the Levant region remained poorly understood,   

despite prior research establishing that Northern Arabia was a dynamic site of human evolution and cultural development.   

This was primarily because organic remains in the region's arid conditions did not preserve well.  

.In the most recent study, archaeologists evaluated an archaeological site from a lava tube named Umm Jirsan,   

which is situated roughly 125 kilometers north of Medina in Saudi Arabia, in the volcanic area of Harrat Khaybar.  

.Because of the rock art and animal bones that have been discovered at the site that depict domesticated sheep and goats,   

archaeologists believe the lava tube may have been a valuable tool for pastoralists herding livestock.  

Skeletal remains, rock art, and artifacts they discovered attested to at least 7,000 years of continuous human occupancy.  

However, these days, more and more archaeologists are investigating caves and underground environments in the area where prehistoric materials are protected from strong sunlight, wind, and temperature swings.
