The Joint Russian-Montenegrin archaeological expedition continued research of Malishina Stena, a rockshelter in the northern part of Montenegro in 2018. This year the excavations were carried out in the central part of the site to investigate cultural layers A-C. New results confirmed the assumption that the cultural-chronological sequence of the site represented the sequence of the Middle and Upper Paleolithic complexes. The lithic industry of layer A is characterized by developed blade and microblade production. The tool assemblage contains various tools typical of the terminal stage of the Paleolithic. Primary reduction patterns identified in the industries of layers В1, В2 and С1, are based on removals of small and medium-size flakes from the centripetal cores. Tool kit includes both Middle and Upper Paleolithic tool types.
