Remains of Homo neandertalensis have been found in numerous caves across the island, indicating that the island was frequently occupied up until 40,000YBP.

At the conclusion of the last glacial maximum 11,650YBP, Aeda was cut off from mainland Tarephia by rising sea levels, creating the Strait of Aeda in the process.
