The Akkar plain foothills are the location of several surface archaeological sites found between Halba and Adbe in Akkar Governorate, Lebanon.[1]

The sites were found in neogene conglomerates above the 200 metres (660 ft) contour on Louis Dubertret's geological map and mentioned by R. Wetzel and J. Haller in 1945.[2] The materials found were described as "Gros bifaces" along with other roughouts. The tools were originally classified as Chelleo-Acheullean however Lorraine Copeland suggested them reclassified as a Heavy Neolithic assemblage of the Qaraoun culture in light of more modern research.[1]
