Abstract

The lithic and ceramic assemblages (blades, scrapers, burins, jars, bowls) may be attributed to the "Besorian phase". A similar assemblage of material culture was discovered at the site of Ramot Nof. The absence of typical remains of material culture of large Ghassulian sites of the area, such as basalt bowls and ground stone tools are probably the result of the occupation's nature. The absence of any traces of copper industry may be due to the early date of the site, at the emergence of the Chalcolithic culture, or due to its nature
