This report summarizes the results of excavations conducted by the Institut National des Sciences de l’Archéologie et du Patrimoine and the German Archaeological Institute at Ifri el-Baroud (Gunpowder Cave). The cultural deposits of Ifri el-Baroud showed to be of a depth of up to 3 meters and to have formed between the 19th and 8th century BC, as proved by a series of radiocarbon datings. The upper part of the stratigraphy consists of an “escargotière” from terrestrian snails, the lower part is formed by a compact and fi ne sediment. The stone industry shows a development from bigger artifacts to the typical lithic assemblage of the Iberomaurusien (especially backed blades) and to microlithic forms. Excavations at Ifri el-Baroud complement others undertaken by the same project at Ifri n’Ammar (upper deposits) and Hassi Ouenzga Plein Air.

The article will be available as a PDF in the near future.
