Title: Stone technology at the Middle Pleistocene site of Mata Menge, Flores, Indonesia

Abstract: The stone technology from Mata Menge on Flores, Indonesia, is described, providing the first detailed analysis of the largest stone artifact assemblage from a stratified and securely dated Middle Pleistocene site in Southeast Asia. Technological analysis indicates a reduction sequence based on the centripetal, or "radial", reduction of transported blanks. The implications for early hominin behavior on Flores are considered.
