The Eastern Sahara is a truly fascinating place to study prehistory; despite the impression of a hostile environment, widespread and abundant archaelogical evidence suggest that the area was not always a lifeless desert. This monumental volume deals with the Halocene stratigraphy and archaeology of Nabta Playa, perhaps the largest of the deflaltional basins found in the region and one especially rich in archaeological remains documenting past human presence.
