Abstract

A long-term international investigation of the geoarchaeology and prehistory of Farafra oasis in the Egyptian Sahara is revealing how a series of abrupt short-term climatic changes during the past 12,000 years restructured patterns of human settlement and subsistence. Increasing aridity eventually prompted Neolithic desert dwellers to migrate to and settle in the Nile valley.
