The Middle Paleolithic is represented by five Levantine Mousterian sites found in the Judayid Basin and the Jebel Qalkha study areas. Only two of the sites, Tor Sabiha and Tor Faraj, yielded in situ materials and these became the focus of research for the period (Figure 4.1). The other sites might best be described as find-spots where low densities of diagnostic artifacts (e.g., Levallois points and cores) were recorded on the surface.
