After the initial surveys and two seasons of excavations (2001 and 2004), in 2007, Attila Péntek donated a huge amount of lithics from the Acsa-Rovnya site, to the Hungarian National Museum. Since the first publication (2008), new Aurignacian open-air localities were discovered at the site. We made a re-evaluation of the site, in the light of the new data.
The Out-of-Africa hypotheses gather recent African Earlier Stone Age research under one of the most important interpretive umbrella, which has to be tested against the hostile environmental and taphonomic situation in the Sahara. We recognize only a few ESA sites here, mostlyin secondary contexts. The object of this paper is one of these contexts from the Sudan.
