Tayma field season wildly successful

Tayma fossils cropA survey and excavation programme was conducted in the Nefud Desert, just east of Tayma, Saudi Arabia. Previous work in the region indicated that paleontological sites were present along palaeolakes. The team re-visited these areas and were excited to re-locate the fossil sites. Significant paleontological and archaeological sites from the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic periods were also investigated.

The results of these investigations will be presented at the ‘Green Arabia’ conference, in Oxford (April 2-4, 2014).
