Near the city of Rosh HaAyin, Israel, archaeologists from tel Aviv University have found the oldest evidence in human history of long-term food procurement. According to researchers, primitive canned food was made several hundred thousand years ago.

In the cave of Kesem, which is studied by archaeologists, were found the bones of deer with traces of butchering. Apparently, the legs of the animals tried to keep the whole and ate for a few weeks after the end of the hunt. Moreover, the shelf life could reach two months. Kesem cave was first inhabited 420 thousand years ago. Scientists believe that at first the prey was butchered at the hunting site, and some carcasses were brought to the cave. Limb bones were also crushed to extract bone marrow.
