Nahal Yarmuth 38 is a small Neolithic (MPPNB and PN) site in central Israel. The
preliminary results of the PPNB flint assemblage studied to date and presented in this report, suggest that it is comprised of two major components: a classic bidirectional blade (“Hollywood”) industry with an extraordinarily high percentage of tools but seemingly with no matching cores yet with a number of possibly matching CTEs; and a “non-Hollywood” industry represented by a full chaîne opératoire.
