The article discusses findings of an assemblage of flint tools from the settlement of Durankulak-Blatnitsa dated to the early stages of the Late Neolithic Hamandgia culture (Bulgaria). The authors provide characteristics of typological, technical-morphological and functional features of the production toolkit. It is established that mainly local varieties of flint were used here as raw material. The authors suggest some commonalities between the flint inventory from Durankulak-Blatnitsa and Hamandgia sites in Romania, much earlier Neolithic sites in North-Eastern Bulgaria and the Bug-Dniester sites in Moldova. These data are of great importance for elucidation of genesis of the early farming cultures in South-Eastern Europe.
