Kom ombo: preliminary report on the fauna of late paleolithic sites in upper egypt.

Abstract

A Late Pleistocene fauna comprising 3 fish, 1 reptile, 22 birds, and 14 mammals is identified from sites containing Sebilian, Sebekian, Silsilian, Menchian, and Halfan industries. It is remarkable for its variety, especially of birds, and gives evidence for year-round occupation of these sites.
