Alternative modes of occupation of Tabun Cave during the deposition of the Mousterian Levels B and C have been proposed. Garrod & Bate (1937, Excavations at the Wady El-Mughara, Volume 1. Oxford:Expand
Chronostratigraphy of aeolianites from the Sharon Coastal Plain of Israel
Abstract The Sharon Coastal Plain in Israel is composed mainly of sand dune fields and aeolianite ridges. Three major sand accumulation periods are documented in the terrestrial record along theExpand
Composite projectiles and hafting technologies at Ohalo II (23 ka, Israel): analyses of impact fractures, morphometric characteristics and adhesive remains on microlithic tools
Abstract This study focuses on the correlation between the production of backed microliths in the Levant during the late Upper Palaeolithic and their use as side elements of composite projectileExpand
Chronology of Pleistocene sedimentary cycles in the Carmel Coastal Plain of Israel
