A last interglacial fauna from the eastern Sahara


Results of recent work on the middle Paleolithic at Bir Tarfawi, in the hyperarid Eastern Sahara (<1 mm of rain per annum). Fifty-nine taxa have been identified and indicate that at times during the Last Interglaciation the area received at least 500 mm of rainfall as a result of the northward shift of the monsoon belt, and that there may have been water connections between Bir Tarfawi and unidentified but permanent bodies of water elsewhere
