This chapter presents the osteobiography of a man who lived in predynastic Egypt, between 3200 B.C. and 2000 B.C.. One of only a few Neolithic skeletons representing the early Neolithic use of this large oasis, the bones and teeth present many clues about the mobile herders and foragers and the early stages of agriculture in the Western Desert of Egypt.
