dc.description.abstract Study Summary This study deals with four blades and five stone tools One of which is a manufacturing nucleus found in Hattiat Hifan south west of Al- Jaghboub, now placed in the tobruk military museum. There are also in the museum natural stones were found in the Oaeses. When these stone subjected to thorough study it appeared that they were man- mide belonging to the upper palaeolithic period, to be dated between 30470 thousand years ago, it was also evident from the oxidation which covered these tools that they are not from the same region, as it appeared that some of them were brought from other regions, and after tracing the manufacturing technique we notice the existence of manufacturing difference, they demonstrated the existence of a diverse technical thought. As for the manufacturing nucleus or the main mass of stone, the tool maker extracted from it a lot of flakes for the manufacturing of other tools, when a number of tools was subjected to studies it did not provide enough information about the culture of the period This , no doubt,affect the importance of research, several directions have been taken to increase the information in order to present the subject in a balanced way. The study delt with types of rocks used in making tools. The specification of the blades and their defect. It was important to study the culture and industries of the upper palaeolithic period in the eastern reigon of libya and be familiar with its sites and observing the nature of the archaeological evidence specially in the green mountain, the benghazi plains, and desert areas surrounding the city of al-kufra. From all this we may reach a conclusion that confirms the ancient human settlement in Jaghboub, which began since the lower Palaeolithic Age. These conclusions can be reached after making a comparison between the Siwa tools and tools of the previously mentioned Oases. It is proved that the two regions share one culture The study ends with a conclusion and a recommendation as a preventative measures in order to protect the cultural heritage of the Oases. en_US
