Early Upper Palaeolithic in the Russian Plain: Streletskayan flaked stone artefacts and technology

  • Bruce A. Bradley (a1), Michael Anikovich (a2) and Engenii Giria (a2)

The artefact assemblages from early Upper Palaeolithic sites in eastern European Russia contain flint tools of more Middle Palaeolithic type. With these artefacts are bifacially thinned triangular forms that may represent the first use of this technology in the area, and perhaps anywhere in Europe.
