Archaeological finds at El Khiam show nearly continuous habitation by groups of hunters since the Mesolithic and early Neolithic periods. The Khiamian (c. 10000-9500 BCE) period, named for this site, is characterized by flint arrowheads now known as "El Khiam Points."

El Khiam was first excavated by R. Neuville in 1934, by Jean Perrot in 1951 and González Echergaray in 1961.
