Tabun Unit I Flake Models

  • Matthew D Hunstiger (Creator)



This dataset consists of flake models representing archaeological materials from Tabun Cave, Israel. They were excavated in the late 1960's to early 1970's by a team led by Arthur J. Jelinek of the University of Arizona. This Tabun Unit I assemblage was knapped by hominins approximately 165,000 years ago. The flakes are housed at the University of Arizona's School of Anthropology. These models are of the flakes that were created, or knapped off, as hominins made stone tools. They were created for the purpose of studying scar directionality in archaeological chipped stone analysis, and formed part of the archaeological side of a dissertation by Matthew D. Hunstiger.
