Michmiche Gouffre: A Meyroubian site in Mount Lebanon

Abstract

Michmiche Gouffre is a Late Middle Palaeolithic site in Mount Lebanon that illustrates particular techno-typological configurations rarely addressed in the literature. The surface site displays a genuine coexistence of Levallois and volumetric blank production accompanied by both typical Middle- and Upper Palaeolithic tool types. The latter are regularly produced on Levallois blanks. Together with more than 30 such sites in Lebanon and a handful of them in northern Israel this complex of late Middle Palaeolithic sites foreshaows developments leading to the industries of the tranisitional phase bordering the Upper Palaeolithic in the Levant.
