HK70-71, Har Karkom, Israel
I took these photos on a exploratory hike to the southwestern corner of the Har Karkom mesa. The landscape strikingly corresponded to one of three precognition dreams that I had over a year before arriving at Har Karkom. I took the trail up to the dry wadi, climbed up past HK70 into the many Paleolithic hutfloors around HK71 and HK72. I found candidates for zoomorphic and anthropomorphic flint figurines on at least a half dozen of these hutfloors.
Some of these are presented in this gallery. Interpretations: James Harrod.
Note. While the hutfloor sites in the area of HK71 are distinguished into HK71 a, b, and c, I could not determine precisely to which of these the shown artifacts belong.
