Email, March 2000, Ursel Benekendorff and Jan Evert Musch provide excellent comments that help interpret the imagery of flint nodule carvings, from near the 'Paleolithic Sanctuary', Har Karkom, which are produced in a style (white cortex nodules with often only few flake removals to indicate stereotype of animal species) very similar to those from Surrey, England and elsewhere in Europe, which may be attributed to late Neanderthalers. I have added their comments with respect to particular images throughout the gallery Middle Paleolithic: HK Surrey-Like Flints Gallery
