Early Paleolith site Bobulești V

Tyragetia, serie nouă, vol. I [XVI], nr. 1, Arheologie. Istorie Antică

Among Early Paleolith monuments on the territory of Moldova, Bobulești V site prominently ranks in the Răut river basin. It was situated on the surface of the Răut river third terrace between Gura Camencii and Bobulești villages, Florești region. On the surface of the terrace, badly destroyed by yearly floods, over three thousand of flinty objects – Early Paleolith nucleus, chips and tools typical for apprentice monuments of the region have been gathered. Dwellers of the site used Klektonian technique to chip off flint. Typological classification of the Bobulești V tools is made by the method of F. Bordes. Each object is described in order. Hollow and toothed tools, also many rostral shapes (N62) typical for Early Paleolith monuments of this region constitute a remarkable part of the tools.

Immediate analogies of the flint articles of Bobulești V site we find among Early Paleolith monuments Duruitoarea Veche, Mersyna, Ripiceni-Izvor, Luca-Vrubleveckaja which form a group of peoples sites of the Risskaya glaciation’s epoch.
