A Heavy Neolithic archaeological site of the Qaraoun culture was discovered at Al-Bireh by the Catholic, Jesuit archaeologist Auguste Bergy along a south to west track that lead from the road to a small spring. Bergy originally though it was a "Chellean factory site" before the Heavy Neolithic was defined by Henri Fleisch. Lorraine Copeland concluded that it was probably a factory, noting several worked tools and a large Neolithic pick. The material is now stored in the archives of the Saint Joseph University.

Other artifacts discovered in the area date to the Canaanite, Phoenician, Roman and Byzantine eras.

Ancient caves in the area can also be found and are known as "Ain Almizrab Caves" (pictured).
