Notes

Abstract:
Qaafzeh cave is known primarily for the Middle Paleolithic human remains uncovered therein during the early and later (1965-1979) excavations. Significantly, fragments of two skulls, attributed to the Upper Paleolithic were recovered during the early excavations, conducted by R. Neuville and M. Stekelis. This report describes skulls, compares them to other prehistoric skeletal remains from the Levant, and provides a summary of th Paleolithic assemblages at this site. Two series of AMS dates place the Upper Paleolithic contexts of layers E the early excavations and the corresponding layers 11-8 of the later excavations, within the time interval of 31 (uncalibrated). As one of the skulls was found in layer C, and the second in a disturbed deposit, a date for these ca. 29-26 ka BP appears reasonable.
