Paleolithic Tools

Points, scrapers, blades, and bifaces.

 

Recovered from field behind Amman Training College, 1994. With the exception of the microlith in the upper-right corner (most likely Neolithic, or about 9,000 BP) and burin on a flint blade in the lower-left corner (Upper Paleolithic: 48,000 - 18,000 BP), the majority use the Levallois technique and appear to be Levantine Mousterian (98,000 - 48,000 BP).
