Summary/Abstract: This paper discusses an upper Paleolithic cave in the foothills of the Caucasus. Since 1996 a joint team of Georgian, American and Israeli researchers has been involved in systematic archaeological excavations in Dzudzuana.Archaeological works revealed there three stages of upper Paleolithic period, but we present only final upper Paleolithic assemblages, which are characterized by the presence of microgravettes and backed and retouched bladelets. The paper further presents a lot of interesting materials.
