The Talimbue site at Southeast Sulawesi is packed with lithic and these offer a new perspective on the lithic technology of Sulawesi. The absence of information on the prehistoric lithic technology of Southeast Sulawesi is a factor of interest that makes research on knowledge of the Talimbue site necessary. Lithic artefacts were manufactured from the terminal Pleistocene to the Late Holocene. This research will disentangle the details of the lithic technology at the Talimbue Site. The analyzed flaked stone artefacts fall into 3 categories, which are retouched flakes, debitage and cores. For its part, debitage was classified into 3 categories, which are complete flakes, broken flakes and debris. The retouch index was also measured so as to provide a quantitative estimate of the level of retouch intensity of the retouched flakes. The results of the analysis indicate changes in the stone flake technology during the period of occupation of the Talimbue Site. The change of technology occurs because the process of adaptation caused by a change of environment. Keywords: Lithic, Technological change, Period of occupation
