Summary/Abstract: Anetovka 1 site is located on the western outskirts of the village of Anetovka (Domanivka district, Mykolaiv region, Ukraine) on the right bank of the Bakshala river (right tributary of the Southern Bug). The site was discovered in 1978 by the Black Sea expedition headed by V. N. Stanko. Anetovka 1 was interpreted as a two-layered site with two chronologically and genetically close complexes. Earlier, the archaeological collection of Anetovka 1, taken as a whole, was compared with the assemblages thought to show «Aurignacian traditions» (Sagaydak 1, Muralovka, Zolotovka, Rashkov) and was attributed to the Anetovka archaeological culture (along with the Epigravettian site of Anetovka 2). The present article deals with the flint collection of 1981. The collection includes cores, flakes, blades, debitage, scrapers, burins, micropoints, points, retouched blades and flakes and other tools. Specific to the industry are carinate scrapers, micropoints of the Sagaydak-Muralovka type, and peculiar retouch burins with transverse burin spalls. As to the tools typical of the Epigravettian industries (first of all backed microblades and micropoints) they are absent in the collection. Therefore, the flint inventory of Anetovka 1 can be attributed to the Epi-Aurignacian industry.
