Kenyan Capsian[edit]

The article correctly states that "The Eburran industry which dates between 13,000 and 9,000 BCE in East Africa, was formerly known as the "Kenya Capsian" due to similarities in the stone blade shapes. There is no proven relationship with the Capsian". An even more accurate phrasing could be based on this quote from this paper by Emanuel Thomas Kessy: "There is no proven relationship with the Capsian.The term kenyan Aurignacian was later replaced by Kenya Capsian and was recently renamed Eburra after Mount Eburru located at the center of its distribution (Ambrose et al. 1980 "The Taxonomic Status of the Kenya Capsian)".

Great find. Will probably add to article, or you can add it if you like. However, just find more sources so it can be better supported. 67.180.241.40 (talk) 09:21, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
