This volume summarizes the emergency surveys and excavations conducted in 1970-1976 in the Gebel Maghara section of northern Sinai, an area whose prehistory was previously virtually unknown. Primary attention is devoted to the Upper Paleolithic, Epi-Paleolithic, and Neolithic occurrences and industries. Studies on the environment (past and present), radiocarbon dating, and Middle Bronze Age I finds are also included.
