The 20 m2 area was excavated at Rock Tung-7 site in 2017. All cores could be divided into two groups: radial-type cores and cores for shortened removals. Cores for shortened removals are represented by single-platform (cortex) single-front cores, double-alternative-platforms - double-adjacent-fronts cores, and double-adjacent-platforms - double-adjacent-fronts core. Tools include hand axe-like and chopping-like artifacts, as well as notched and scraper-like instruments. The technical and typological characteristics of lithic industry and position of the artifacts in the weathering ground deposits make it possible to suggest a relatively ancient, possibly Early Paleolithic age of the site.
