Karst areas are the most important source of discoveries for archaeologists. Because of their unparalleled protected conditions, caves and karst have the unique ability to preserve remains for millions of years. Specific types of remains that would otherwise be lost include the world's oldest prehistoric paintings, ancient burials, man-made tools, consumed foods, carved ivory gurines, religious statues, and evidence for the first invention of dwellings and fire. Even today, crucial discoveries are still being made in caves, collapsed former caves, and karst areas. In many parts of the world, the only archaeological remains are found in caves. For this reason, it is of paramount importance to protect karst environments.
