Vera Miller, Sagi Filin, Danny Rosenberg, Dani Nadel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mortars, bowls, cupmarks, cupules, and similar features hewn into bedrock are hereby termed bedrock features (Nadel and Lengyel 2009). In the Near East they first appear in Natufian sites (ca. 15,500-11,500 cal b.p.). They are found on cave floors and in open-air sites, in all ecological and geological settings (Nadel et al. 2009; Nadel and Rosenberg 2010; Rosenberg and Nadel 2011a; Rosenberg et al. 2010; Terradas et al. 2013).
