The current excavation (Fig. 2) was conducted in order to determine the exact chronological age of the site with advanced 14C methods and luminescence (OSL). The excavation focused on two sections that were exposed in Marks’s excavation in the southern part of the site: Section D in the east and Section E in the south (c. 10 sq m; Figs. 3, 4). Two geological units were identified in the sections. The upper unit (thickness c. 4 m) included mainly pebbles and gravel that were deposited by a fast-flowing stream. This unit contained sub-units distinguished by the size and composition of their pebbles. The lower unit (thickness 1.5 m) included sand (silt) deposited by a slow-moving stream. Marks exposed four archaeological levels in this unit; however, only two of them (2 and 4; Fig. 5) were identified in the current excavation. Some 800 artifacts were collected in the new excavation, mostly from Level 4. The flint industry is similar to that exposed by Marks: it includes mainly blades produced from unipolar blade cores (Fig. 6) using a hard hammer. Levallois-like points were produced from the blades (Fig. 7), as well as tools, such as scrapers (Fig. 8:1), burins (Fig. 8:2) and notches. In addition, dozens of charcoal samples were collected, mainly from Levels 2 and 4. A preliminary analysis of the samples has revealed the dominance of Juniper (Juniperus phoenica) and Tamarisc (Tamarix cf. aphylla) species. The charcoal samples from the excavation will be analyzed and dated using advanced methods that will help determine the exact age of the site and the time of the transition between the Middle Palaeolithic and the Upper Paleolithic periods in the Levant.
