The analysis of the refitting of flint artefacts excavated by S. Kowalski and J. K. Kozłowski at Site 4 in Bębło, Kraków district, in 1954, has covered only a part of that material, approx. 1000 items: all precores and cores, blades and distinctive spalls, as well as those flakes (together with a few chips and chunks) that were located precisely within the excavation. The analysis of the material has brought rather negative results. The two-constituent refits make up approx. 0.5% of all studied items, a significantly lower number than in other Final Palaeolithic or Late Palaeolithic assemblages, where the percentage of refits usually ranges between 10% and 20%. The absence of refitted cores and sequences of blades can be explained by the character of the Bębło site, a workshop specialised in the production and export of blade debitage. The absence of refits related to the preparation and repair of cores is more difficult to account for. It may have resulted from several factors.
