Sites E-91-3 and E-91-4: The Early Neolithic of El Adam Type at Nabta Playa
After the long period of aridity which marked the last stages of the Pleistocene, rainfall returned to southwestern Egypt, probably by 11,000 bp, as the African monsoon belt intensified and expanded northward (Close and Wendorf 1992; Close 1996b). The earliest evidence for human reoccupation of the region dates to the tenth millennium bp and has been called Early Neolithic of El Adam type (Wendorf and Schild 1984:409–411).
