The incised flint assemblage from neolithic beisamoun and its significance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Incised flint items are a rare phenomenon in the archaeology of the southern Levant. However, occasionally such items are found, and these reflect morphological and stylistic variation of the incised design as well as a variety of characteristics related to the item, on which it was executed. The current article presents a unique group of flint items found on the surface of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic-Pottery Neolithic site of Beisamoun (Hula Valley, northern Israel). The assemblage includes 24 items, mainly cores and cortical flakes that bear various incised patterns. The paper provides a descriptive account of the incised flint assemblage and discusses its characteristics.
