Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and Mistaken Point on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Canada 2017The first two stamps on the mini sheet and the booklet shows famous fossil found locations:
Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and Mistaken Point.
The first stamp shows Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, known for its remarkable fossil specimens that represent every known group of Cretaceous dinosaurs, as well as its impressive area of virtually undisturbed badlands and riparian (riverside) habitat.
The stamp has similar design to Dinosaur Provincial Park stamp issued in 2015, but it is smaller in size. On the stamp from 2015 the name of the park is written in white font on the foreground just over country name on the buttom left corner. On the stamp from 2017

Fossil at Mistaken Point on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Canada 2017
The second stamp shows Mistaken Point, the rugged coastal cliffs host the oldest known collection of large fossils in the world, marking the world’s first appearance of large, biologically complex organisms. Some fossil is also visible in big zoom.
This fossil site is located at the south-eastern tip of the island of Newfoundland, in eastern Canada. It consists of a narrow, 17 km-long strip of rugged coastal cliffs. Of deep marine origin, these cliffs date to the Ediacaran Period (580-560 million years ago), representing the oldest known assemblages of large fossils anywhere.

 [A2] Royal Mail starts its 2017 Stamp Program with a subject that has not previously been featured as a stand-alone topic: how people lived in prehistoric times has always been a fascination for many and the Ancient Britain stamp issue explores this subject in some detail.  The stamps show famous iconic sites and some of the most exceptional artefacts found across the UK, and overlays illustrations to show how people lived, worked and used the objects. We also explore the social and technological evolution of these early Britons.  The first metals were used in Britain while still in the ‘Stone Age’. The arrival of cultures that could ‘make metal’ would have a dramatic effect on society. In the British Isles the first seams of copper were exploited in Ireland around 2500BC. The discovery of tin in South West England helped to make Britain an important centre – copper smelted with an amount of tin makes the superior metal bronze: harder, more durable and versatile and the so-called Bronze Age saw several other technological advancements.  Overall, the stamps give a timeline across thousands of years of history, from a glimpse of Stone Age ritual of 11,000 years ago, through the Bronze Age and into the Iron Age of some 300 BC.

Nahal Mearor Caves on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Israel 2017 [A3] Three stamps showing UNESCO world heritage sites of Israel. One of them depicting a beautiful prehistoric stone tool from Nahal Mearot Caves in Israel.  Four caves (Tabun, Gamal Nahal and Es-Skhul Cave) are carved into the mountain on the southern slope of Mount Carmel, at the entrance to the Nahal Me'arot Caves. Archeological excavations conducted at the site from 1928 to the present have discovered evidence of human existence near and inside the caves over hundreds of thousands of years. Among the many findings were remnants of houses, various stone tools, jewelry, bones of animals used for food and graves.
Neanderthals may have lived side by side with early humans and possibly interbred with them, according to new research. Stone  axes and sharp flint arrowheads of both branches of the human race have been discovered in limestone caves in northern Israel. The  findings have led archeologists to believe the two sub-species found harmony in a coastal mountain range that today is in a state of war with its neighbours. one of the bones uncovered at
Nahal Me'arot - a World Heritage site - had lethal wounds which suggested prehistoric men lived in peace with each other 80,000 years ago. More info on Dailymail

 [A4]   Fossil found place, Cliefden cave on stamp of Australia 2017This stamp issue presents four highly significant caves from around Australia. Each stamp provides us with a glimpse into these spectacular underground environments. One of the stamps shows Cliefden cave.
