Abstract

Site BT-14 is an extensive remnant of lacustrine sediments near the northern end of the Tarfawi depression (Fig. 21.1). The site was first studied in 1974, and again more extensively in 1986 and 1987 (Ch. 22, this volume). Several mesa-like remnants of indurated lacustrine sediments occur in the lowest part of the Tarfawi depression, marking the positions of the deeper pools in a network of ponds and lakes that existed at various times during the Middle Paleolithic. The remnants are surrounded by soft aeolian sand on the surface of which are extensive scatters of deflated artifacts, particularly close to the remnants of cemented lake sediments.
