The Flint Assemblage from South Horbat Tittora
Keywords: Flint, ad hoc tools, chronology, typology
The flint assemblage consists of 311 items, which were collected in salvage excavations near Horbat Tittora, in Modi‘in. Most of the complete bifacials are characteristic of early Pre-Pottery Neolithic A (PPNA) assemblages, while several tools have close parallels in assemblages of the later PPNB horizon. Two flint items were dated to subsequent periods: the Chalcolithic period and Early Bronze Age I–II.
