Abstract

The Eastern Sahara is a fascinating place to study prehistory Confronted with the stark reality of a hyperarid environment that receives no measurable rainfall, lacks vegetation, and is seemingly without life, it would seem to be an unlikely place to find a rich and complex mosaic of archaeological remains documenting past human presence. Despite this impression of a hostile environment, there is widespread and abundant archaeological evidence.
