... Confronted with difficulties in the classification of major UP sites from our study region, we turned to methods that allow the quantification of critical morphologies on lithic artifacts to build a framework for our UP assemblages from new excavations at Baaz Rock shelter (Conard et al., 2006b(Conard et al., , 2006c and survey (Bretzke et al., 2012;Conard et al., 2006a) in western Syria.
