Fossil Collection

The fossil collection provides a record of artifacts from 1.5 million to 6,000 years ago

Tel Aviv University’s human fossil collection is amongst the world’s most important collections.

​Due to Israel’s singular geographic location at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia, the specimens in the collection constitute a unique prehistoric record of our past.
