Nahal Oren is a large Late Natufian site, which mostly served as a burial ground. Two series of excavations were conducted on this site providing a plethora of material remains. This article deals with the bone artefact assemblage from the first series of excavations on the terrace. Lack of data pertaining to stratigraphie and spatial distribution of the bone items, as well as no data concerning thefaunal assemblage, permits only a basic typological analysis of the bone artefacts. The assemblage comprises 90 items that generally accord typologically with other Natufian bone artefact assemblages reported in the literature. At the same time, some characteristics are evaluated and discussed herein.
