New Findings on Lithic Industries of the Middle to Upper Paleolithic Boundary in Dagestan

A.A. Anoykin, V.S. Slavinski, N.A. Rudaya, and A.G. Rybalko.

The article presents geomorphological and stratigraphic descriptions of Tinit-1 – a Paleolithic site in Dagestan. A technological and typological study of lithics from excavation 2 includes two refi tting analyses. Results of pollen analysis of habitation layers and of radiocarbon dating are presented. Sources of raw material and possible economic specialization are discussed. Taken together these fi ndings indicate that the site dates to the late Middle Paleolithic or early Upper Paleolithic.
