Trihedral Neolithic is a name given by archaeologists to a style (or industry) of striking spheroid and trihedral flint tools from the archaeological site of Joub Jannine II in the Beqaa Valley, Lebanon.[1] The style appears to represent a highly specialized Neolithic industry. Little comment has been made of this industry.[2]
