The article presents the recent results of archaeological excavation of the Acheulean complexes at the site of Darvagchay-Zaliv-4. The authors focus upon the description and analysis of the stratigraphic section and collections of stone artifacts. The lithic industry is characterized the typologically indistinct and nonstandard core and tool forms. The most distinct, “marking” elements of the artifact collection are heavy-duty tools including pebble tools (choppers) and bilaterally worked tools (hand-axes, picks). In the course of field studies, a large collection of new archaeological materials concerning the most ancient history of the region has been assembled providing a new insight into the process of evolution of stone industries in this area during the earliest stages of the Paleolithic period.
