Amlaq Qatih or Amlaq el Qatih is a Heavy Neolithic archaeological site of the Qaraoun culture that is located 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) northwest of Baaloul, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of Qaraoun, Lebanon.[1][2]

The site was discovered and collections made by Henri Fleisch and Maurice Tallon in 1955. Materials recovered were found to be of a cream-coloured, cherty type of flint and were suggested to date from Acheulian, Heavy Neolithic and normal Neolithic periods and included a few Levallois cores.[2]
