Kuumbi Cave Lithics
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Archaeology and Ancient History.
2007 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

A lithic analysis of material from a stratigraphic sequence from the cave site Kuumbi on Zanzibar, Tanzania is presented. It can be concluded that three distinct raw materials and reduction strategies have been used, related to different time periods. A simple, opportunistic limestone assemblage in the uppermost part of the sequence belong to the Iron Age, a bipolar on anvil strategy based on small quartz nodules may relate to a LSA occupation and finally a set of bifacial flakes in the lowermost part of the sequence may relate to a MSA horizon older than 22 000 yrs before present.
