Abstract: The Hypogeum was discovered by accident in 1902 when construction workers broke into the prehistoric site as they were cutting cisterns for a new housing development. It is a place of global significance for understanding the evolution of intellect, creativity, technology and culture at the key stage when human groups across the region were making the critical transition to agricultural subsistence strategies. Human skulls were found during the first excavations, among other archeological materials.
