ponnuki: that actually makes sense. Though there are dozens if not thousands of places outside of the Old City in Jerusalem, and then outside Jerusalem you've got Bethlehem, Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee, Jericho, Samaria, the Dead Sea, Ceasarea, Jaffa, Acre... everywhere you go there is something.
For the purposes of this quiz, that's pretty relevant, as hunter-gatherer tribes do not build monuments or leave behind great ruined cities for people in later generations to come visit. What exactly are you going to designate as a UNESCO site in the Australian outback that relates to the aboriginal people who lived there 50,000 years ago? "well... this patch of dirt here may have once been home to some people, though there's no evidence that it was and we can't know for certain, and that patch of dirt over there may have similarly been home to some people for a few months or so. Who knows. Please visit our gift shop."
For some reason the posted link in my previous comment was not the whole link, so I have posted it above!
