Israeli archaeologists during the excavations near the city of Dimona were found many flint tools, that never before in Israel had not met. They are made in the technique characteristic of the ancient inhabitants of Africa.
About the opening with reference to the statement by the Israeli antiquities authority told The Jerusalem Post. Research proves that at least 100 thousand years ago, the Negev desert was crossed by people coming from Africa.
At this point the artifacts discovered during excavations near the town of Dimona. Archeologists found there a lot of flint tools, carved in the technique of “Nubian Levallois”. Such tools found in Africa, but never ever encountered them in Israel. This discovery offers new understanding of the route by which our ancestors followed from Africa.
“This method of treatment of stones is identified with the modern humans who lived in East Africa 150-100 years ago and migrated from there around the world – said in a press release from the Israeli antiquities authority. – Over the past decade in the Arabian Peninsula had found many Nubian sites. This fact has led many scientists to believe that the region has been the Exodus of modern humans from Africa. Parking near Dimona is probably the most Northern point of entry “Levallois industry” out, thereby indicating a migratory path from Africa to Saudi Arabia and from there, possibly in the Negev desert”.
the So-called Levallois technique has unique characteristics, so can be confused with other equipment it is impossible. It was a rather difficult method of working stone, but he allowed them to control the size and shape of the tool.
the Ancient masters did radial chipped at the edges, getting a discoid workpiece, resembling a tortoise shell. Then split from one to several shells, flat on one side and had sharp cutting edges. Often they were used as knives and arrowheads.
