  • Afrin and Dederiyeh Cave

    In a giant lime-stone cave in this valley was found in 1993 a set of infant skeletons which could be supposed to be that of Neanderthal's.

    The ruins and historical sites to the north, west and south of Allepo are known collectively as the Dead Cities zone. Afrin valley is located in the north end of the Dead Cities zone and in a large lime-stone cave called Dederiyeh at the east boundary of this valley was found a skeleton of infant Neanderthal by the Japan & Syria joint expedition team in 1993. In this area are found many other historical sites, but a Hittite temple remained near a small Kurdish town called Aindara is the most popular among tourists.
