Shuqba (Arabic: شقبة) is a Palestinian town in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate, located 17.71 kilometers northwest of the city of Ramallah in Palestine. It is bounded from the southwest by the village of Qibya, from the southeast by Shabatin, from the northeast by Deir Abu Mish'al and from the north by the Israeli settlement of Ofarim.
Dorothy Garrod studied the transition of Mesolithic to Neolithic culture represented in a cave on the northern bank of Wadi an-Natuf near Shuqba in 1929, the name "Natufian Culture" was then coined to describe the inhabitants of the southern Levant at this crucial juncture in human history.
