[en] The aims of this report are three-fold: i. to provide new informattion concerning the Palaeolithic of Turkey; ii. to present the shifts in lithic techniques évidenced during this period; and iii. to demonstrate significance of the new information for interpreting long distance relations between Western Asia and Europe. In fact, in spite of the crucial geographic situation of Anatolia between the Near East and Europe, it has rarely been the subject of intensive excavations and publications concerning the Paleolithic periods. Recently obtained data are therefore of significant interest.
