Israel : the oldest burial site on planet earth (150,000 years old):
The oldest known ritual burial of modern humans at Qafzeh in Israel: a double burial of what is thought to be a mother and child. The bones have been stained with red ochre. By 100,000 years ago anatomically modern humans migrated to the middle east from Africa. However the fossil record of these humans ends after 100kya, leading scholars to believe that population either died out or returned to Africa.[24][25]

Mirje, island Brač Croatia

Mirje is a location near Postira on island Brač where can be found the remnants of the Benedictine monastery which was mentioned in the Povlja document (Povljanska listina). The monastery complex with the cloister from the Early Christianity period was originally dedicated to St. Stephen. In distinction from other churches and monasteries from the Early Christianity period, Mirje monastery is situated far from the coast. On the foundations of a villa rusticae was built an Early Christian basilica from the 6th century and finally the Benedictine medieval monastery.

The theatre is marveled for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from skênê to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating.

Soluntum (Italian Solunto) was an ancient city of Sicily, one of the three chief Phoenician settlements in the island, situated on the north coast, about 16 kilometres (10 mi) east of Panormus (modern Palermo), and immediately to the east of the bold promontory called Capo Zafferano. It lay 183 metres (600 ft) above sea level, on the southeast side of Monte Catalfano in a naturally strong situation, and commanding a fine view.

Excavations have brought to light considerable remains of the ancient town, belonging entirely to the Roman period, and a good deal still remains unexplored. The traces of two ancient roads, paved with large blocks of stone, which led up to the city, may still be followed, and the whole summit of Monte Catalfano is covered with fragments of ancient walls and foundations of buildings. Among these may be traced the remains of two temples, of which some capitals and portions of friezes, have been discovered. An archaic oriental Artemis sitting between a lion and a panther, found here, is in the museum at Palermo, with other antiquities from this site.
