Bojnice sa radia medzi najstaršie a najvýznamnejšie lokality s paleolitickým osídlením na Slovensku. Prví ludia - neandertálci (Homo neanderthalensis) sa tu usadili v období štvrtohôr - v strednej fáze staršej doby kamennej pred 120.000 - 90.000 rokmi (v oblasti, kde stojí bojnický zámok), pricom dalšia (mladšia) etapa osídlenia je datovaná do obdobia pred 60.000 rokmi (v mieste Prepoštskej jaskyne - dnešné Múzeum praveku Slovenska). Mimoriadny význam Bojníc spocíva v tom, že sa tu našlo až 11 vrstiev pravekého osídlenia a jedny z najbohatších nálezov existencie neandertálskeho pracloveka moustierskeho typu (názov odvodený z náleziska Le Moustier vo Francúzsku) na území Európy.
Prepoštská jaskyna leží na okraji obrovskej travertínovej skaly, ktorá patrí k najväcším travertínovým útvarom na Slovensku. Tento travertínový pokrov sa vytvoril za dlhé obdobie usadzovaním vápnika, ktorý obsahovali vyvierajúce minerálne vody z miestneho termálneho žriedla. Práve vdaka týmto vodám vznikla eróziou jaskyna, ktorá má dlžku 11 metrov a je vyzdobená hráškovitými stalagmitmi. Nad vchodom do nej sa vypína mohutný travertínový previs, tvoriaci prirodzenú ochranu pred nepriaznivým pocasím. Prepoštskú jaskynu ako paleolitické nálezisko mimoriadneho významu objavil r. 1926 prepošt Karol Anton Medvecký, správca bojnickej rímsko-katolíckej farnosti a archeológ-amatér (po nom dostala pomenovanie „Prepoštská“).

Bojnice are among the oldest and most important sites with Paleolithic settlements in Slovakia. Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) were the first people to settle here in the Quaternary period - the Middle Paleolithic Period of Old Stone Age 120.000 - 90.000 years ago (located in the area of Bojnice Castle). The next younger stage of settlement process dates back about 60.000 years ago (on the Prepost Cave grounds - today´s Museum of Prehistoric Slovakia). No less than 11 stages of ancient settlement and the rich findings of the existence of the Mousterian Neanderthal specimen (named after the Le Moustier site in France) found here make Bojnice a special place in Europe.
The Prepost Cave lies at the edge of the big travertine rock, which is one of the biggest travertine formations in Slovakia. This travertine surface deposit was created during a long period of time by the deposition of calcium from the local thermal mineral water springs. The cave, 11 metres long, decorated with pea shaped stalagmites, was formed due to erosion by water. Above the entrance to the cave there is a huge rock overhang providing natural protection against bad weather. Karol Anton Medvecký, Provost and Custodian of Bojnice Roman Catholic Parish, archeologist-amateur, discovered a Paleolithic site of great importance named after him the Prepost Cave in 1926.
