American Scientist reports on project findings

News article 1American Scientist reports on how the Palaeodeserts Project has found traces of humans in Arabia.

It describes how satellite imagery has allowed the Project team to focus on areas that display strong evidence of having held water in the past. Working on the assumption that where there was water there would also be plants and animals, including early humans, they have found animal fossils, including elephant, and stone tools such as small, thin cores and flakes that had been retouched to make for a sharper cutting edge.
