Full description for The Archaeology of the First Farmer-herders in Egypt
This exhaustive study explores the rise of farming and herding in the Fayum oasis in the Egyptian Western Desert. The neolithic farmer-herders in the Fayum relied heavily on hunting and fishing, which had been the major subsistence activities since the Epipaleolithic period. Shiari's research on lithic artifacts used by the Epipaleolithic hunter-fishers and Neolithic farmer-herders in the Fayum is a unique investigation into the mobility and residential strategy of the Fayum people and their time and labor investments in tool production.
