Figure 4.9 Variable intensity of edge retouch recorded on different forms ofracloirs (single, double, transverse and convergent) in the Mousterian assemblages from Bisitun (Iran), and La Quina and Combe Grenal (France), according to Dibble 1987a. Dibble argues that in all these sites the relative intensity of the retouch conforms with his hypothetical model of the variable degrees of edge resharpening and reduction represented by the different racloir forms (I = light retouch; m = medium retouch; h = heavy retouch).
