Garm Roud 2, Iran : bladelet production and cultural features of an Upper Paleolithic key site south of Caspian sea.

Abstract : For more than twenty years, Iran has focused a great deal of research on the emergence and development of Upper Palaeolithic industries. South of the Caspian Sea, the site of Garm Roud 2, dated to 33878 ± 3300 Cal BP, is one of the rare sites with the site of Mirak to have yielded stratified evidence of occupation from this period. This paper presents the results of the typo-technological analysis of the lithic assemblage collected during the 2006 to 2008 excavation campaigns. This one is focus on a bladelet production, straight and twisted. Very few similarities appear between this assemblage and those from the sites in the Zagros and the rest of Iran, the dates of which are generally earlier (about 35 to 40000 Cal BP). Garm Roud 2 yield original evidence and may be seen as a key site for understanding Upper Palaeolithic technocomplexes in this area and the development of bladelet production.
