Abstract:
WF16 is an early Neolithic settlement of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A culture dating to between c 12,000-10,200 years ago. It was discovered in 1996 and evaluated between 1997 and 2001. This volume describes excavations undertaken between 2008 and 2010. These revealed a dense cluster of semi-subterranean structures and a large amphitheatre-like structure, and numerous early Neolithic burials. The deposits contained a rich array of artefacts including chipped and coarse stone, shell and stone beads, decorated stone, and worked bone. Large quantities of animal fauna were recovered along with sediment samples from flotation for the recovery of plant remains. This volume describes the excavation, providing all context descriptions and stratigraphic relationships, description of the architecture and burials, and initial radiocarbon dating and chipped stone analysis to establish the chronology of the site. Analysis and interstation of the finds are underway and will be published as journal articles and collated in a future WF16 monograph.
