Abstract

This paper discusses the techniques of manufacture, typology and raw materials of the Upper Palaeolithic bone artifacts from the recent excavations at Ksar 'Aqil, Lebanon (directed by J. Tixier). Most pieces are either awls or points, made from bone more often than antler. Cet article traite des techniques de fabrication, de la typologie et des matières premières de l'outillage en os du paléolithique supérieur provenant des fouilles récentes à Ksar 'Aqil, Liban (dirigées par J. Tixier). La plupart des pièces sont soit des alênes, soit des pointes, fabriquées sur os plus souvent que sur bois de cervidé.
