Katsuhiko Ohnuma (born 1944) is a Japanese prehistorian and lithic expert. He was director of the Institute for Cultural Studies of Ancient Iraq, Kokushikan University and he was teaching in the same university until his retirement. In 1982, Professor Katsuhiko Ohnuma received his Ph.D. He was a member of the Institute for Cultural Studies in Ancient Iraq at Kokoshikan University in Japan. He has led several archeological projects, including rescue excavations in Syria and Iraq, focusing mainly on Neolithic and later sites. In recent years, he has participated in the excavations of Tangeh Bolaghi caves near Pasargadae and Tang-e Eshkan Cave in Arsanjan in southern Zagros, Iran. His other research activities include publishing a book on the Lebanese Ksar Akil rockshelter in British archaeological reports series and numerous articles. His main interest is the Middle Paleolithic stone industry and he is a professional flintknapper who is focused on Middle Paleolithic industries and the Neolithic bladelet industry. Taking a focused approach to various problems as outlined above, he developed effective experiments to test his hypotheses and elucidate aspects of the behavior of prehistoric populations. His efforts were always geographically centered upon the Near East and most specifically the Middle Palaeolithic. A special issue of Journal Al-Rafidan (XXVIII) was published in 2017 in his honor on the occasion of his 70th birthday Al-Rafidan- back issues.
