Located in WaˆdıˆMikhfar, Yemen, the stratiﬁed site of HDOR 410 wasexcavated by the French Archaeological Mission in Jawf-Hadramawt.
The site illustrates the co-existence of a form of expediency and a form of complexity in the production of lithics, revealing the presence of industrieswith low technological visibility (expedient production of ﬂakes) at a time traditionally characterised by marked typological constraints (production of trihedral points)
Part of the reason for putting this up is to highlight the archaeology of Yemen and to give a nod to a dear friend Dr Michel Mouton. who I have not seen for over 20 years.
Yemen is an amazing place with much to uncover.
In this paper by Remy Crassard looks at one of the hundreds of sites they uncovered in the 80s and 90s.
