"Square tools" from the Siwaliks of North-Western India : flat choppers, axes, adzes ?

Abstract

Number of Early Soanian sites in the Siwalik Frontal Range yield particular tools types provisionally named "square tools". These tools compare well with some of the Hoabinhian specimens, characterising the Late Pleistocene of South-East Asia. They support the suspicion that the Early Soanian has nothin to do with the Lower Palaeolithic of North-western India.
