Transformations of Upper Palaeolithic implements in the Dabba industry from Haua Fteah (Libya)

Hiscock, Peter


Different models of stoneworking technology in the Upper Palaeolithic are tested by examining an assemblage from Haua Fteah, on the Libyan coast of north Africa. Evidence that some scrapers have been reworked into burins, while some burins were modified to form scrapers, show how this typically Upper Palaeolithic industry contains morphological transformations between types. This evidence is consistent with a technological continuity from the Middle Palaeolithic.
