|Description:||Azokh Cave (also known as Azikh or Azykh) contains Pleistocene and Holocene stratified sediment infill. The site was discovered by M. Huseinov (also named Guseinov by other authors) who led the previous phase of excavations. The geographic location of the site is at an important migratory route between Africa and Eurasia. The site has yielded Middle Pleistocene hominin remains (a mandible fragment) recovered in the 1960s during a previous phase of excavation work, together with Acheulean (Mode 2) stone tools and contemporaneous fauna. An important characteristic of the Azokh 1 cave site is a continuous sedimentary record along a 7 m section, ranging in age from Middle Pleistocene (MIS 9-8) to Late Pleistocene (Mousterian industry/Mode 3, MIS 5), and to Holocene periods at the top of the series|
