Egyptian Prehistory Monographs 7The prehistory of the Eastern Desert of Egypt is not well understood. A Holocene Prehistoric Sequence in the Egyptian Red Sea Area is an important contribution to our knowledge of the Epi-Palaeolithic, Neolithic, and Predynastic occupation of the area. It presents the results of an excavation of a small rock shelter near Quseir, Egypt, which is one of the rare stratified sites in the Eastern Egyptian desert.The stratigraphic sequence starts around 8000 B.C.E. and continues until about 5000 B.C.E. The archaeological material attests clear connections with the Nile Valley and the Western Desert during the wet Holocene period. Topics covered in the book include the site's lithics and ceramics, microwear analysis of the lithic artifacts, and the woody vegetation of the Neolithic period.
